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|
