Large Christmas cards that feature fun Santas, ribbon and a custom punched greeting

A few more Christmas cards from my pile of leftover Christmas gift wrap.  I was very careful when I unwrapped the gift from my son because I just loved these cute Santas on the silver background.  I managed to get four panels that were not wrinkled so I worked with those.  I chose large envelopes and made white cards to fit.  I cut red cardstock panels for the fronts and then trimmed my panels to fit with a small margin on each side.  I found the greetings in my stash (Desert Diva) so I trimmed them to size and then used the scraps from the red layers to layer them.  I cut the red layer a bit long and trimmed the one end with my Decorative Label punch (SU) by inserting it from the back so I could cut only one edge.  I love the lovely finish it gives to my greetings.  I punched a hole and inserted some black ribbon and adhered the greeting to the front of my card with 3D foam tape featuring one Santa nicely.  Next, I adhered the ends to the back of the panel before gluing this large element to the front of my white card.  Love these cards!!!!!!!!  Therese
