Christmas cards - large images with small greetings and an embossed layer

A few more Christmas cards for my stash!!  These are both large images - the Santa (Cre8ive Hands) was laser printed and watercoloured after trimming to size and the cute Christmas tree (KISSPNG) with the font greeting was colour printed.  I distressed the edges of both images.  I added several loops of white fiber to the red embossed layer (SU) of the Santa one and mounted that layer to a green card front.  I added the Santa image using 3D foam tape over the fiber and then added a layered punchie greeting.  The font greeting was laser printed and punched using the Word Window from StampinUP.  It was layered onto a green punchie from the Modern Label from StampinUP as well.  I mounted the greeting with 3D foam tape on the right hand side and just double sided tape on the left where it overlapped the image.  I like the look of the shimmery paint on Santa's coat!!
For the second one, I added gold ribbon after mounting my red embossed layer (SU) adhering the ends to the inside of the card.  I tied a short length with a single knot to the one on the front to simulate a bow.  The image was mounted to the card front using 3D foam tape to finish off the card.  These were made several hours apart and I was not aware I had used the same colour scheme!!
