CASE-ing Christmas for Jingle Belles adventure

I made an effort to make some choices, so I have two more Tree Skirt Tic-tac-toe cards for Jingle Belles, although I sort of cheated for the first one.  It's a CASE of Mynn's cute snowman card at CASE-ing Christmas, which already went straight down the center of the tic-tac-toe board with bling, a die cut, and snow: 
stamp set - Snow Place; ink - Pacific Point, Versamark, Tempting Turquoise (on envelope), Soft Suede; Stampin' Write marker - Tangerine Tango; Stampin' emboss powder - Iridescent Ice; card stock - Whisper White (thick and regular), Pacific Point, Soft Suede; Big Shot with Snow Friends framelits and Sleigh Ride edgelits; blender pen; Dazzling Details; Frosted Sequins (retired); Stampin' Sponge

The next card was a bit more of an effort on my part - I consciously chose the diagonal with Santa, die cuts and gold, and I had to give some thought to working in the gold:
stamp sets - Cozy Christmas, Festive Fireplace; ink - Mossy Meadow, Tip Top Taupe, Night of Navy, Watermelon Wonder; Stampin' Write markers - Tip Top Taupe, Soft Suede; card stock - Crumb Cake, Marina Mist, Watermelon Wonder, Whisper White, Gold Foil; Big Shot with Hearth & Home and Festive Fireside framelits
I wish I'd given a little more thought to the window frame - it might have looked better in vanilla than white.  On the other hand, if our walls were actually watermelon, white may be just the accent needed for window framing.
