Paper Smooches Christmas Card

I recently bought a set of Paper Smooches Christmas stamps called "Merry Motifs" and am in love with the adorable Christmas images! To make this card, I stamped the images onto vellum and heat embossed them with red and verdigris embossing powders. In hindsight, I wish I would have gotten some brighter green embossing powder, but up close this looks lovely with the little gold flecks in it.
I used a Kraft 5x7 inch card base and cut some red glitter cardstock as a background. I added some green velvet ribbon and a metal "Merry Christmas" sentiment before adhering my Christmas icons to the ribbon. They were die cut using a Spellbinders Square Swatches die on my Cuttlebug. I adhered the red background with foam tape, the ribbon with glue tape and the stamped images with micro glue dots.
I'm entering this card in the following challenges:
