More than one fold

It's Tuesday and time for a new challenge from Cardz4Guyz.
This week we would like to see masculine cards made using:-

(more than 1 fold)

Now as many will know this isn't my style but I had a bit of head scratch and came up with this card using a mix of ancient free DP and an LOTV image.

To start I made my base by scoring a panel of white card 4 times to create the mountain and valley format. On a separate piece of matching card I die cut the background panel and then used the same die to draw around the die on the inside over some DP of a crowd, that came in a Making Cards Cards for Men mag over 10 years ago!! When cut out freehand and glued to the panel, it creates a neat border.
In the same mag was some grass DP which I edged with a grass punch, MS, and then glued to the front of the valley sides. The crowd was then added to the back and a scrap panel of card was added as an easel to give extra stability.

You can see a little better what I mean here.
The cute footballer, LOTV, was coloured with Copics then fussy cut and placed on the middle mountain fold. A sentiment, hot foiled in gold, was added to complete.

So where will this challenge take you?
For more inspiration please check out the rest of the DT here.

Joining in over at:-

Digi or Physical stamp
They both have their place, you can do different things with both, horses for courses. Here I've used Digi as I enlarged the image to fit the scene. That's the real advantage, sizing up or down, oh and mirror stamping is soo much easier, not that I've done that!
