Nativity Bible Story
Card size: 4 3/4 x 7 1/2". Start by making a shaped card with the largest Booklet Basics Die, placing the die hanging over the fold about 1/2". Die cut then score the top of created base at 1 7/8”, fold down toward inside. The card base when opened should have a score at 3 3/4" and 5 3/4".
Cut 2 more largest Booklet Basics from white and 1 from gold colored decorative paper. Also cut the largest Booklet Frames die from Luxe Gold twice. Glue the gold color decorative paper to 1 white Booklet Basic then glue them to the Luxe Gold Booklet Frame, (for strength, glue the other white Booklet Basic to the back of the gold Frame) then glue that stack to the card base front, bottom half only, matching bottom edges.
Sponge Scattered Straw around the edges of the card inside. With the other Luxe Gold Booklet Frame, glue it under the card bottom. Close the card flat while gluing to make sure bottom frame and top frame line up when closed. Cut 4 smaller Booklet Basics from white and 1 from foam.
Stamp 3 wisemen and shooting star on one of the booklets and stamp Nativity, star and Oh Holy Night on another one using VersaMagic then embossing with Gold Embossing Powder. Sponge Scattered Straw for grounding on both panels and stencil stars with the same color. Now glue another booklet to the gold paper (top), follow with foam sheet Booklet then another white booklet. Sponge edges with Scattered Straw. Score the booklet pieces, with the images embossed, in the center vertically to look like pages then glue the center only of the wisemen panel on the front, over foam stack, and the Nativity panel glued down flat inside card.
Stamp and gold emboss 8 small poinsettias from Large Festive Poinsettia, stamp and emboss 3 medium poinsettias from Small Festive Poinsettia with 3 sets of leaves, stamp and emboss 6 medium poinsettias from the Christmas Poinsettia with 2 sets of holly leaves, stamp and emboss 1 Holly Berry Spray and 2 sets of leaves from the Holly Berry Spray set using VersaMagic or clear embossing ink and Gold Embossing Powder on Deluxe Flower Shaping Paper. Die cut and use the shaping molds for all flowers and holly leaves. Glue 3 of each size for the 2 small Festive Poinsettia, 3 together for the Christmas Poinsettia and for the largest flower glue 3 of 1 size then 2 more of a smaller size. Glue 2 sets of stamen together for each flower of the Festive Poinsettia then glue to the centers of those flowers. For the Christmas Poinsettia glue 3 gold pearls in each center.
Die cut 1 Luxe Gold and 2 white Starry Night die cuts. Glue the white together and trim off the outer edge leaving only stars on the outside of die cut, then do the same with the gold and glue that behind the white ones off-set. Trim ends as needed to fit under the left side of the booklet page on the card front then glue it inside between top page (it should still be loose) and the one under. Add white pearls to each star.
Glue the Holly Spray onto left side of card front then glue the 3 Festive Poinsettia along the left edge, add leaves where desired. Figure out where you want the easel to stay open then glue the Christmas Poinsettia down to the inside of card where they will act like a “stop” for the front. Add leaves and gold pearls to finish arrangement.
With a sponge dab glue onto card front and inside then glitter with Ultrafine Crystal Transparent. Use a paint brush to brush glue onto leaves and flowers then glitter with Rajni’s Crystal Clear. Make sure to clean brush immediately so that glue does not dry on it.
