Seeing double

I made a couple more cards to add to my Christmas box, again following the theory of making similar but not identical cards in the hope of being a bit quicker (didn't particularly work with these, but there y'go lol!!)

I would like to enter the first card for this week's ABC Challenge - G is for Green.

My second card fits this week's Creative Card Crew #35 - ribbons & gems
I would also like to enter both cards for the following challenges: Charisma Cardz #43 - No Backing Paper, Whimsical Ink Sorority - embossing, and Kraftin' Kimmie's Challenge #4 - Tag, You're It!

Main image: Inkadinkadoo ("Tin Can Mail"), stamped with Brilliance ink in pearlescent ivy and embossed with holographic powder;
Papers: none!
Supplies: Card 1 - pearlescent "ice gold" card from Edwin Allen, embossed with Cuttlebug "holly ribbons" folder; Christmas tree charm from The Hobby House; ribbon from my stash; Card 2 - white linen cardstock embossed wtih Cuttlebug "Swiss Dots" folder and edges ripped and inked with Brilliance ink; ribbon, gems and brads by Papermania; spacers from my stash;
Tools: holly corner punch; Martha Stewart "Arctic Snowflake" punch from The Hobby House.

Thanks for stopping by.
