Nativity Scene Tri-fold Card


Are you ready for Christmas yet? I just looked at the calender and swear I felt some heart palpitations... Eeeeek! So much I still want to do and hopefully enough time to get it all done!!!

Today I want to share a Nativity Scene Card I made using only the Print and Cut feature on the Silhouette Cameo. When you are making more than one card, Print and Cut can save you many hours of piecing all the cut outs together!





Well what you think of my super cute Nativity tri-fold Card? Sweet and simple, just how I like it! Reminds me of the cards my parents would receive when I was a little girl, except those where pop up cards... I did love those! I'll stick to tri-fold for now... pop up cards are way over my head!

To make this card you will need:

SVG Cuts files from O Holy Night SVG Collection
White Card stock to print on
Silhouette Cameo with DSE software
Adhesive

Here is a screenshot of  my images before I printed.
Before this step, I had ungrouped then regrouped all the individual layers together, then I moved them around to create the folds for each layer of the card. (This step is a little time consuming but will save you more time in the long run!)
 To make my images more visible, I chose to line each piece with black outline.
Also, below you see the base of the card I created...  pretty simple!

 I made this card to fit in a standard 5 X 7 envelope.


The inside opens to reveal your message! Plus there is enough space to hand write a personal note.


Hopefully you liked my Nativity Scene Tri-fold Card and saw how easy it was to create a complete Print and Cut Project. If you have any questions I would be happy to help :) 

Thanks for stopping by!
Happy Crafting  :)

These are so adorable! I used this kit for a class project a few years ago and I'm very aware of the time it takes to piece these all together! I have an Eclips, but I'm going to give this a try! Wish me luck!

I'm sure you can do it! It takes some time but once you get to the cutting and assembly stage it takes minutes! Good luck :)
