Claret and silver church town

For these cards I've used the stamped and embossed images from the Personal Impressions 'church town' stamp using some claret card and embossing with detail silver. These are what I made before decided to make the black and silver cards instead (you can see them here). I didn't want to discard these even though I wasn't really that happy with them, so I've mounted on to green card blanks and added a dreaded peel off 'Season's greetings' (I have a few of these from years ago - they come in handy sometimes - lol!).

These are for:
