Half Cut Technique Card using Lavinia Stamps

Today I tried a technique that was new to me.  I think it may be called the "Half Cut", if not, then I'd love to know what it's called.It's where a card has two folds and on one fold you only cut half of the shape.  I have found it difficult to photograph it properly, so I've provided additional images.

I used Distress Inks for the backgrounds of all areas.  The stamped images are all Lavinia Stamps and have all been stamped in Versafine Ink.

These are the stamps that I used:  Willow The Witch, Bugs, Bats, Sacred Tree, Sacred Spells.

Here's a photo of how you cut the card.

I watched this tutorial on how to cut the shape.

I'm going to enter this into the Lavinia Stamps October Creative challenge.
