April Christmascards

Aprils challenge over at Hjertebodens Juleblogg is "Tealightcard".
I have made three different cards, all with room for tealights.
This first one, that opens up like a book, I made in blue and white.
The designpapers are from Maja design. The image is from Magnolia, coloured with ProMarkers. The fur on Tildas coat is made with crushed velvet flock.
The stamped texts on the tag inside are from North Star Stamps and Kort&Godt.
I used some Magnolia Doohickeys and Martha Stewart punches and of course some glitter and bling. ...and some cheesecloth. All edges are brushed over with DistressInk WalnutStain.

Here's the card opened:
...and a close-up of Tilda:

My second tealightcard is made like the first kind of tealightcards I learnt to make. The paper here, I believe, is Poppydesign. Image is, as usual ;) from Magnolia, and coloured with ProMarkers (I'm really into a Magnolia-period, I know...)
The swirlstamp is from Panduro, and the round textstamp, saying "God Jul" I think is from Kort&Godt.
On the edges I used Holiday Vintage Ink from Ranger Industries.
The card has a pocket on the frontside with a "pull-out"-tag where there's place for a greeting:

My third tealightproject in April is a giftbox containing tealights and napkins.
I found the idea to this kind of giftbox in Mariannes papirverden. That woman must have magic fingers! And what a creativity! She makes the most wonderful things with papers! If you haven't visited her blog, you really should do it. And check out her tutorials...
Again I've used my Magnoliaimages, coloured with ProMarkers.
The designpaper is from Papirdesign
Here the box is opened. I've used a Spellbinders-die to make the sprigs, and a Magnolia doohickey tag that one Tilda is sitting on. Inside the tag I've stamped a little christmasgreeting.
and, at last a little closer view of the images:
