November Christmascards

Today I have finished my November Christmascards for Hjertebodens Juleblogg. It's been so fun foolowing their year-long challenge of making three christmascards every month! Some of the summermonths were quite hard - but even then, sitting down in the middle of July, trying to make christmascards, I somehow managed to find the christmasfeeling and make the cards :)
At this time of year I'm bubbling with christmasfeeling, and makes a lot more than three christmascards a month, so on these three I tried to use the same style, to make them quite similar, but yet different.
This post is full of pictures, so to make it easier (at least for myself), I'll list the challenges I'll enter below each card.
It may be right to warn you, that here comes lots of pictures:
Inside I made a pocket for a giftcard.

This card will be entered into the challenges at:
Hjertebodens Juleblogg
MDUC - Debbies Sketch
Creatalicious Challenges - Christmas with Sparkle
By the Cute and Girly - Christmas Girls
I LOVE ProMarkers - Christmas Trees
The Craft Garden - Christmas, but NO red or green
Crimbo Crackers - Make it Sparkle
Heidis Hobbystuggu - Julekort med Bling/ Sparkle (Christmascard with Bling( Sparkle)

***
This second card has much of the same papers (Papirdesign and Vibeke Spigseth for Poppydesign). It has a "frame", a "window", where I placed a tree. The greeting inside the frame is stamped upon a plastic sheet and placed in the frame. I also used a lot of swirls and pearls and snowflakes and the lovely ribbons from Martha Stewart, and a snowflakecharm.
(It sure isn't easy photographing the sparkly papers from Vibeke Spigseth - but I can't resist using them...)
Inside the card I had to find a creative solution to hide the back of the frontsides frame, so I used Magnolias fireplacestamp and a lot of firbranches (Spellbinders Foliage), and, of course, put on some red bling in the branches. Then I placed two Tildas by the fireplace - aren't they cute, so shy standing there, waiting for christmas - I love them :)

Here come two close-ups, of the front and the inside:

Now, my second card will go into these challenges:

And, finally, my third November christmascard. I've wanted this stamp for sooo long, but haven't been able to find it 'till a couple of weeks ago. I was so happy when I got it in my mail, and I love it soo :)
Again, same papers, plus one from Panduro (I may remember wrong here).
The picture below shows the insides. I used Spellbinders Lattice Rectangles for the panels. (I got this set for my birthday last month, a really surprisegift, from my aunt and uncle who was on holiday in America - isn't it lovely!)
...and a close-up of the stampimages...
