Artfully Sent: Nativity Card

posted in: Cards | 0

I’m back with a second card created with the Artfully Sent Cricut collection.  I love Christmas.  It’s one of my favourite holidays.  When I saw all the beautiful Christmas card options on this cartridge, I knew immediately which one I just had to create, right away!  This card is the very first one I made when I cracked the cartridge box open.

The front of the card is very simple, because the inside … the inside is awesome!  I used one of the new Christmas stamps, in Black ink and two strips of Silver Shimmer Trim.  And now… the inside:

Isn’t that so neat?!?!  Don’t pay too much attention to the cut star because my Cricut was acting up and I needed to change my blade.  I couldn’t find my new blades so I just left it.  It didn’t cut so nicely, but because I was so excited to put this card together, I used it anyway!  I sponged some Cocoa ink around the edges of the cut images to minimize my messy cuts.  A girl’s gotta do whatever it takes to make a card.  🙂  I added some Bitty sparkles and White enamel stars to make the night sky even more glorious.  And here’s a closer look at the pieces that create the pop up:

Each of those sections are cut for you, with tiny tick marks to show you where to score it.  I strongly suggest you score it instead of trying to fold it on your own; it’ll work much easier.

Just like the last card, the stamped frame and sentiment are from the stamp sets in the collection.
