You can attach the card to the gift or put it in the box, just make sure it’s attached well on the gift.  You can include a small tag on each gift, or with the coordinating paper it’s fine to write on the paper directly 1 of 3, 2 of 3 etc.  You should have your names on at least one of the boxes.

Include the gift receipt, something can get broken in transit, they may change their mind on a set, or they might receive duplicates (and people are bad for not including the receipt).  You can include it in the card, taped onto the gift (my last preference) or tape it to one of the gifts before wrapping them (I think this is best if they do have to return something).

I would wrap them separate and if possible stack them and tie all together with ribbon. I would also attach signed card to presents. If you can’t stack them then I would attach a To/From little tag to each present. You can put your signed card into the cardbox. Corresponding gift receipt would go inside each box.

I don’t think the matching paper is enough, I previously received presents wrapped in same paper from 3 different people.

Like pp said, it’s ok to number the gifts like 1 of 3, 2 of 3, ect. Is it possible that you can string them together with some ribbon or something to stack them? If not, I would write my name on all of them. Not with a card, but maybe a little gift tag or something. I would put the gift receipt either in the card, or taped to the box before wrapping it. I would put the card on the box after you wrapped it, not in the card box.
