The Miracle of Christmas papers by Hunkydory have some amazing collages of the advent story in them. My inspiration for this slimline card front came from the collage and blending of two images from the Bitesize Book.
This is the third in a series of blogs about Christmas cards made from the 2020 Hunkydory paper collection entitled The Miracle of Christmas.
The inside of the card has insert paper from the Miracle of Christmas collection glued in two sections so that the card base center fold is left uncovered.
When the card is opened, a fussy cut image of Mary and Joseph with the Christ child in a manger pop-up. The stable from the image has also been cut out and glued to the inside. To make the image pop-up, tabs were cut out at the feet of each of the adult figures and folded back. Next the couple was folded in half as close to their center as possible. With the card half opened I laid-out the position of the figures so that their heads were in the bottom corner of the card making sure they would not be visible when the card was closed. Next, I put glue on one tab and pressed in place and them glued the other tab to the other side of card.
A greeting will be handwritten below the figures inside the card.
The envelope is stamped with a coordinating stamp to hint at what is inside.
