Star Fold Nativity Card

In September I made my first Star Fold Card.  You can find it here with the directions.  Shortly thereafter, while thinking about Christmas cards, I thought the star fold card would make a nice Nativity Scene card.  I decided to make one to enter the Holiday card competition at the Greenville, SC Cricut Meet.  Oh my, there were some gorgeous cards.  Those ladies were amazing.  My card didn't even win an honorable mention.  LOL

Card Recipe:
Star Fold Card Base
I found a piece of paper at Hobby Lobby with Scripture and the Nativity on it.  I cut it to line the panels on the card.  I cut it strategically so the wording matched the figures on each corner.
Cricut Christmas Village  Cartridge
Gold Lace

This is how the card looks opened.  I will have to  make a special envelope to mail it or give it.

Thank you for stopping by today.  I hope you have a marvelous Monday.  I think I will probably be working in my yard today.  I called a guy last Monday to come mow for me and he hasn't shown up yet.  Oh Well, such is life.  God Bless You!!! Peggy
