Nativity Scene

I love doing side step cards.  I think they are easy, but makes it look like you spent "forever" on it.  I got this nativity scene svg last year from Cheryl at Cafexpressions, but I never had a chance to play with it.  This year, this easy, pretty card will be one of my two Christmas cards I'll be sending to family and friends.  Splitcoasters Stamps is where I followed a video tutorial for my step-card.  The only thing different I did was to made sure I had 3.5 inches on the step part rather than what the lady said.  Cheryl has the step card svg to go with her scene.  I think there is a pdf file to tell you where to cut and crease.

I made a gold shadow for each layer. I added an angel with trumpet instead of a star. I embossed with a Stampin' Up folder.  I will add a sentiment at the bottom before I send the card.

A2, side-step card...will add sentiment at bottom before mailing

Side-view....I used pop-ups behind each layer, including angel


  1. This is so stunning, a wonderful card :o)

  2. Beautiful, beautiful! I love the gold for the shadow! The light catches it just right, and makes the scene look so heavenly! Great job, Cely! Thanks for the link, too! Yes, there is scoring information in the file for the card base, too. :0)

  3. WOW! That does look like it took forever. It's beautiful!

  4. OK, now you're just showing off! I would check out the links and find the instructions, but I don't think I could ever do something this intricate. Gorgeous!

  5. This is absolutely gorgeous Cely! Just love that gold shadow. It makes it pop right off the card. Lucky family for sure!
    Hugs to you!

  6. Cely
    How elegant!!!
    Such a great idea to use gold as the shadow; just gives it such an elegant feel.

  7. Oh, Cely - This is simply, elegantly stunning! I like step cards, too! Lovely composition! ;-}

  8. Another stunning card. I have never used the SVG you talk about. Is it like a cricut?? I have one of those but never use it.. I had two but sold one.LOL .. I love your card it does look hard to do but got to believe you it's easy. OK I believe you but it looks really really hard.

  9. That's really neat! I love step cards, too, because you can really make a scene!!

  10. Lovely card, Cely. I saw the other day that Cheryl has now added the angel too ;- ) You inspire everyone! Thanks for all the great ideas.

  11. WOW, Cely! So elegant. Love the way you've done the everything all popped up. Terrific!

  12. This is just gorgeous and one to keep!

  13. What a great scene Cely! I've done a centre step card but never a side, hmmm. I'll have to try it, thanks for the inspiration!
