Hey crafty friends! This is Donna from Creative Pixie Designs, and I am so excited to share my second post as a guest designer for The Hedgehog Hollow using the Nativity Stamp from the November 2020 kit.
I wanted to make a scene card using all of the images from the Nativity Stamp and thought that a 3D Pop-Up Card was a perfect choice.
To begin the card, I created an A7 card base out of black card stock. I cut the card stock down to 7” by 10”, then scored it at 5”. To create the pop-up element, I took the left-over strip of cardstock and trimmed it down to 1 ½” by 7, then scored the piece at 3/8”, 5/8” and 1 1/8”. This will make more sense in the video.
After attaching the pop-up element, I created the Nativity scene. I ink blended a piece of Bristol smooth cardstock with Distress Ink in Tumbled Glass, Broken China, Blueprint Sketch, Chipped Sapphire, and Black Soot. Once the panel was dry, I spritzed the panel with water and blotted it dry. Then I added white splatters to create stars and create a ton of texture. I created a second piece of ink blended panel for the ground by ink blending Distress Ink in Vintage Photo and Walnut Stain. And finally, I die cut the panel with Kinetic Waves Die Set by Whimsy Stamps.

Once the panel was completely dry, I attached the scene elements to the card panel, stamped the sentiment, and adhered the images to finish this card. I created a video for this card, which is on my channel or linked below.
