Wow, my third post today...!!! Amazing!! I could have waited with this post until tomorrow but then again, you never know what tomorrow holds... So I might as well show you today.. :-)
My card is made for the challange at Magnolia Down Under, where you are to make a card that folds twice or more so I chose to make a gate-fold-card with a twist. Here it is: (and again... there are lot's of pictures....)
I got inspired by Anneli, who made a similar card with the door a while back only I didn't have any papers looking like wood so I made my own. I used my distressing tool and distress pads vintage photo and walnut stain to color a white paper. I drew the marks onto the paper so it looks like real wood and also cut the edges a bit uneven to make it look more realistic. The latches are a die from Sizzix.
The inside... Tilda is dangling from a rope and the text is also a Magnolia stamp, a Swedish Christmas song.
Fold it out once more.... I've used one more Tilda and multiple stampings of the Magnolia poinsetta-stamp.
In total the card looks like this....
Hope you liked it! It was great fun making it!!! Just can't stop making Christmas cards.... Have a lovely evning!!!!
