Christmas cards - embossed focal elements featuring ornaments and snowmen

I was searching my stash for something else when I came across these supplies from a Christmas card class two years ago.  I decided to make use of the ones which were already embossed - the ornaments and the snowmen (SX).  The ornaments were layered onto the little printed layers and then I added ribbon/ fiber in between.  I trimmed the bottom of all of them with the scallop decorative scissors and paper pierced each scallop with a push pin.  For these two I used the fall snow embossing folder to emboss the white layer for the first one and the torn vellum layer to the blue one.  I adhered the white layer to a white card front and them mounted the ornament layer using 3D foam tape.  For the blue one I mounted the vellum to the texture card front using double sided tape where the image would cover it.  I mounted the ornament focal element with 3D foam tape over that.

For these two I used a metallic gift wrap layer on the left hand one and colour printed digital scrapbook paper (SU) for the one on the right. Both were mounted to red card bases.  The one on the left was embossed with a little tree (SX).  I have quite a few more little layers so I will be using those up if I need more cards for this upcoming holiday season.  
These last four feature scrapbook backgrounds and the one on the left has an added velvet ribbon beneath the image which is covering a joint in the paper.  Fiber used on all of these.
