Greeting card set in a box

Although it's still Christmas time, I thought it would be nice to move on to some non-Christmas crafting now.

I have made a few of these card sets already, but I enjoy making a set of cards, challenging myself to make them all different but still keeping the same feel across all cards in the set. My other sets are here and here with the instructions for making the box. I added another level to the challenge by using a DSP I really had no idea what to do with. I just couldn't get any grasp of this pattern, and I'm still debating with myself whether I like these cards and the colours or not. I also stamped inside the cards, and stamped matching envelopes. At least the whole set is now tucked in the box, away from sight and waiting for some poor unsuspecting victim.

I'm entering my card set in the following challenges:
