What do I have to fix besides the jagged edges and the paper?

Glad to see you're still at it.
The outline stroke of the top-most paper could be more subtle. Great work with the wood texture and shadows and I also like the green scheme.
@Eli Schiff I was busy learning HTML & CSS recently
@Lucia Kubinska You're right. I'm going to fix that. Thanks!
• Very clean
• Good color scheme
• Wood texture is good
• There's some random green on the left part of the rim edge, not sure why.
• I don't like the orange glow at the bottom, doesn't match the pinkish hue of the rest of the wood
• The check is a little too small
• The inside edge where the wood meets the paper looks bad because, although the wood gets [correctly] darker near the edge, the paper stays white all the up against it.
• There's not much value contrast to the wood shading. The top should be slightly lighter, the inside darker; it helps make the shapes easier to tell apart.
Here's a sloppy edit to show what I mean. Nice practice and good luck :)
nice review @Ollin !
@Ollin You're great. Thanks a lot for your time & effort, you even noticed the green. The orange glow looks like a brownish shadow on a light background, but you're right it's too light and colourful on a dark background.
I prefer the smaller check, but i'm definitely going to increase the contrast and fix the paper…it's quite hard (for me) to make the wood darker because it looks dirty then and I want it to look like birch - your edit looks much friendlier than mine. (I spent at least 1h on the right colour of the wood, but your "sloppy edit" is still better…I think you're pretty good)
@Benedikt Awww, you're too sweet :) I will let you in on my super secret wood-color process [I use it for most other stuff too]...
Yeah, so three soft light layers on top gives you perfect colors throughout the shape, added realtime. Then I just do all of my shading in black and white. The only downside is frequent banding, but when you're applying a wood texture to everything banding doesn't matter. Use this power wisely ;)
Special thanks to @Ollin who is probably the nicest guy on Dribbble
