Christmas cards created reusing card fronts, ribbon, and layered greetings

Here are a few more Christmas cards!!!  These ones involved adding another piece of cardstock, some ribbon and a greeting. 
For the top card I trimmed the wreath image which left me with a bit of a space at the bottom which I filled with an embossed strip of green cardstock.  I cut the bottom edge with scallop decorative scissors and used a push pin to pierce each scallop.  I added a gold ribbon over the joint between the pieces and then added my layered greeting using 3D foam tape.  The greeting came from my stash and I layered it onto a brown Modern Label punchie to coordinate with my image. 
For my second card, I trimmed out the little angel to fit on a green landscape card front.  It scrap I cut off worked perfectly to finish off the card on the right hand side so I adhered it to the image on the back with regular tape.  I added a silver ribbon over the joint and then added a layered font greeting from my stash which was created using a silver oval scallop punchie and an oval greeting punchie (SU). 
For my last card, I trimmed the card front to fit on a red landscape card front but needed a bit of a strip to finish it off.  I added an embossed strip of blue cardstock that coordinated with the snowflakes in the background of the Minions card.  I added a length of red fiber to cover the joint between the two.  I chose a greeting from my stash, layered it onto card green cardstock and then mounted it to my card in the top right hand corner using 3D foam tape. 
Three more for the bucket!!
