Embossed Christmas gift card holders

I kept on playing with my embossing powder and decided to get some gift cards ready for the upcoming Christmas season.These 2 were die cut with Accucut gift card die using Kraft paper. I then stamped a back ground Elegant Fronds from JustRite I also embossed the ornament from JustRite and the ribbon from Ribbons,tapes and lace with a pretty green pearl embossing powder.
  I cut the embossed ribbon piece in 1/2 and matted it with the kraft paper under the ornament.( I did this because it was too short to fit across the width of the card.) I used pop dots to add the ornament.
  I embossed the holly stamp randomly on the card and embossed it to make my own background. I stamped the ornament and embossed it as well. ( I die cut it with the coordinating Spellbinders die.) I used the same trick of cutting the embossed ribbon and hiding the space under the ornament to make it fit on the card.
  I hope you learned a new trick today with the too short embossed ribbon by cutting to make a too short piece to fit.
  I will be entering these in the JustRite Christmas blog hop Friday Challenge,and Mod Squads favorite Technique challenge.
  Thanks for stopping
