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.

Children’s Christmas pageants that re-enact the birth of the Christ child are the theme of these quickly made decoupaged pop-up cards.
In less than two hours I was able to make these cute cards using Craft Consortium’s Nativity collection designed by Hetz Cuppleditch. Using the 10 sheets of the pre-cut decoupaged scenes which are labeled with the layer number for each piece it is super simple to glue up these scenes matching pieces to the layer below. (You could use foam pads, but if you plan to mail these cards in the USA, you will pay extra postage because of the thickness.)
The box-like stage is created by using the Hunkydory Final Shadow Box die set using the largest of the rectangular window dies to cut from the double-sided paper also from the Craft Consortium Nativity collection. The back of the stage is cut from scrap packaging with the “Joy to the World” die cut from a purple scrap envelope (or sentiments from old Christmas cards).
An old Kaisercraft sentiment stamp set was used to stamp the back flaps of the envelopes for these cards to foretell what is inside.

Silent Night is humming in the background as the card recipient opens this gold stamp envelope and pulls out a card with a gold embossed “Silent Night” on it’s front.
This is the first in a series of blogs about Christmas cards made from the 2020 Hunkydory paper collection entitled The Miracle of Christmas.
These were my first two cards made from the collection and I was able to make two from each of the Adorable Scorable cardstock and insert papers. All have a gold heat embossed sentiment on vellum and adhered to the front with foam squares. I used double-sided tape to adhere all the papers to the card base. The red nativity also has a gold heat embossed inside sentiment from an older Kaisercraft stamp set while the Little Town of Bethlehem scene uses a sentiment cut from the paper pad.
I stamped all of the A2 envelope backs with the Little Town of Bethlehem stamp using Crumb Cake Stampin’ Up ink which almost matches the gold heat embossing powder used on the cards.
