Fancy Folds.......Sweet Stampin' Challenge

Hello everyone!
It's Saturday and that means it is time for a new Sweet Stampin' Challenge!
For the next week our current challenge is

"Fancy Folds"

This time we are sponsored by
Iva Nova Chest.

Furthermore don't forget our monthly sponsor which is The Ribbon Girl.

Be sure to pop by Sweet Stampin's Blog. We've got plenty of inspiration from the Design Team and we hope you will join us in the fun. Remember, you have only fun to gain!
All styles are more than welcome. The only thing you have to bare in mind is that your project MUST have stamping on it.

Here is my DT card to kick start your inspiration..................

This card is inspired by and their class "His & Hers" which I took earlier this year. One of the techniques shown was partial die-cutting.
I have used this technique to make this card. Bear in mind, that partial die-cutting works best with images which can be mirrored e.g. hearts, stars, circles etc.
Besides partial die-cutting 3 stars I have also stamped a few extra stars. My intention was to create a little "milky way".
The sentiment is stamped using two different ink colours. Most people would mask off parts of the stamp in order to do so. I had on the other hand previously cut apart my clear stamp which made using different ink colours very easy.
To keep the folds of the partial die-cut stars open I have adhered a little piece of 3D foam under the fold.
The final little touch to the card is making a few little dots with the Wink of Stella pen.

Don't forget to stop by Sweet Stampin's Blog and check out the other DT Ladies cards or perhaps even participate in the Challenge.
Join in the Fun :o)
