Nativity Pop Up Box Card

Merry Christmas!  I hope you are having a wonderful holiday.  It's Jeanne sharing a special card with you today.  One that reflects the true meaning of Christmas.

I love making 3D projects and box cards are among my favorites.  There are many tutorials on the internet for pop up box cards.  Here is a link to one from Splitcoaststampers.

My favorite part of making this type of card is filling it.  I will admit that this card took some time and is not for those looking for a quick project.  But it is well worth the effort and makes for a truly special gift /card.

All my pieces are colored using Distress Oxide inks.  I think I used every brown Ranger makes to get a wide variety of shades!

For my night sky I used Stormy Sky, Faded Jeans and Chipped Sapphire along with Wilted Violet.  I left an area white for around the star and flicked water on the panel to add a few minor "stars".

For my sentiment I added my favorite verse of the Nativity from the Gospel of Luke - Luke 2:10-11

Below are some close in pictures of the card.
