Napkin Folded Wedding Card

I have made a Napkin folded card.
I wanted to make a wedding card, and wanted a kind of elegant folding.
The Napkin folding and the Magic Card folding are the most elegant folding techniques I know (by now), and for this card I chose the napkin fold.
This technique has lots af folds, a lot of measuring and cutting and a LOT of inking, as I chose to ink all edges on both the cardstock and the papers.
I used DistressInk WalnutStain for the inking.
Around the edges of the cardstock I used a Martha Stewart PATP-set. I used the same set to make the panel on the closing.The closing is made quite simple with a magnet underneath the designpapers.
The designpapers are from MajaDesigns Vintage Summer Basics-collection. I think I used both sides from two different papers.
On the front I only decorated with a greeting (from Papirdesign, I think), a ribbon, some pearls and some flowers.

Here I've opened the "belt":

Here's the card almost wide open,

Here come two pictures that shows the inside closer:


On the tag (Magnolia DooHickey I stamped a weddingimage (Panduro) both on the frontside:

...and on the back. The images are not coloured, only goldembossed:
