My Favourite Five Christmascards of 2011

Debby of A Scrapjourney shows us her five favourite christmascards of 2011,
and encourages us to find our five favourites as well.
I've spent the afternoon looking through my 2011 christmascards (many!), and have managed to pick my five favourites,
in randomly order, here they come:

First, the chocolategiftboxcards my kids and I figured out for their teachers gifts on last day before the schoolholiday.
I simply love these norwegian "fjøsnisser" on Papirdesigns latest collection.
(A tutorial for this one will come in not so long)
Then the Double Cascade Card.
I found the tutorial for this one over at Mayas Hobbyblogg.
Isn't it decorative - and with its three tags, and quite a big backside, it has lots of place to write and stamp greetings.
On this, third in show, I'm very pleased with the colours. Papers are Vibeke Spigseth for Poppydesign - lovely, thick, sparkly papers.
I have to show a picture of the inside too, where I made a pocket for a giftcard.

The next two pictures show the mailbox I made, to put received christmascards in.
I was very pleased with the result, when I had finished this one, I remember :)
...same box, shown from the side:
...and last, my all white christmascard.
I love to work monochromatic, white too.
But white is a terrible colour to photograph in my part of the world at this time of year, with no daylight...

To pick five favourite christmascards, from a whole year of cardmaking, was rather difficult
- all my sympathy to those who'll have to pick TOP XX in different challengeblogs throughout the year!
