playing cards are especially detailed you would need to use an edible ink printer -- most of those items are muy labor intensive -- you could use an edible ink marker to do the watch faces onto fondant discs and paint the backs -- hats and tea cups wow -- if you could use some chocolate molds you could hold the cost down some but otherwise an upcharge of at least $3 for simpler items like a simple brimmed hat -- if you add flowers and ribbon kaching kaching -- and hand made fondant tea cups should be $5 or more -- this in addition to your $2 per --  

these oughta be $8 to $10 each to be fair unless you can figure out a fast efficient way to go with choco molds or something -- you could draw these items onto dried fondant plaques for some efficiency -- 

best to you

this one is pricey but might be a good size

but you need to purchase all these too and go through the learning curve if you've never worked with chocolate -- although you could push fondant in there too --

most importantly the size of each one should be complimentary to the next -- i only did a quick search -- you'll probably need smaller cards to go with these hats & cups -- the wrist watch in the middle might work if you leave off most of the strap on each side -- 

to be economical you'll want to stay smaller -- i'd upcharge maybe $2 each for something like this if i can keep them all small like the hat & tea cup
