First Christmas cards for 2011 ;)

Hello everyone and Happy Wednesday ;)!
I think i've been away for a week now but, even though i have not created anything for a specific challenge, as usual, this Sunday i have discovered 2 new card techniques that i liked and i felt like trying them right away ;). 
In the end, i created 4 cards for my family and friends. Let's see them.
1st card closed:
same card in intermediary state :D:
same card - open:
As you can see in the 1st pic, it's not perfect, because i made the mistake of using a too large stamp on the biggest square, and this is why i connected the next square a bit miss-aligned. Next time i will know ;).
Card with embedded frame, i still have to embellish it a bit more:
Card with Christmas tree embedded ;) - loved working on it. It looks a bit more vintage-ish, it's for my father in law:
Same card from the side:
...and the last one, also unfinished, the card with Christmas star embedded - loved to make it:
...and in detail:
Hope you like them. Im looking forward to my family's and friends' reaction when they will get them :).
Until next time i'll show up - which might take a while, as i have it full up until the end of next week - i wish you all the best and enjoy every single day :).
