Christmas in Kraft, Green, Brown and White

 This is one of the christmascards and -projects I've been working on the last week. 
The sketch for this card is from Sketchy Colers latest challenge. 
Seeing the sketch I knew I wanted to use it to make a card with some extra folds, for extra greetings :)
To open the card you have to untie the white ribbon, then it's just to start to open up and read (pictures below). The bottomflap has a magnetclosing too.
 I've used papers from Papirdesign and 3ndy Papir. The basecard and greetingpanels are Kraftcardstock.
All edges are inked with DistressInk WalnutStain.
The image is one of the new Magnolias I got for my birthday (I love Hjertebodens wishlist-function :D)
Tripping Tilda here is coloured with Pro- and FlexMarkers.
Behind Tilda I tucked in some cheesecloth.
The doily behind Tilda is made with a Nellie's Multiframes-die.
The Pearlstrings, swirls and poinsettia in the corner are all from Kort & Godt.
On the "bottom"fold I used Martha Stewarts Eyelet Lace punch (from a PATP-set).
The greetingpanels are made with a big scalloped punch fromMarvy Uchida.

The next two pictures show the card opened:
