I started out with 2 8 ½ X 11 cardstock sheets. After making the Zigzag folds (zigzag cards found on youtube). Then I used a border punch on top edges. For my background I cut 6 strips of blue card stock and cut the tops in an angle and used a star punch in corners.After gluing all the blue pieces I then cut the bottoms so they are even with the bottom of the card. Take one of the card halves and cut an opening for the stable leaving a flap (around 1”) at top for the roof. I then took a square piece of dark blue card stock to use for the sky above the stable and used the star punch in the corners.Then I took brown card stock and cut a piece to look like a stable. Cutting a flap (around 1 ¼”) to cover the roof that was cut out in the card. Taking the other half of the card I glued a piece of pale yellow card stock for the inside of the stable. Then glued the 2 cards together and added a larger star at top.I then glued my characters into place. The camel had to stick out passed fold to fit and still be able to fold card.
Hope you enjoy my Nativity Card.
