Oh Holly Night – Live with Michele

Last night on ‘Live with Michele’ I created this Fun Fold – Faux Step Card, using the ‘O Holy Night Suite’. This suite you will find in the Sept – Dec Mini Catalogue by Stampin’ Up!®.

I saw this card created by Mary Deatherage, Mary used the Trucking Along Bundle to create her fun card. Which you can see HERE. Mary has great diagrams on the scoring lines, other wise you will see on my attached video, below.

O Holy Night is a BIG suite of products, for this card I have only used half of it. For me it really depicts what Christmas is all about with the Nativity scene depicting the birth of Jesus.

The Designer Series Paper, O Holy Night, has 3 sheets of scenes depicting desert, towns and night sky. They are 12 x 12″ (30 x 30cm), great for both cards and scapbooking. The only thing is you need to plan out what sections you want to use on your card and cut wisely. With my card below I used half a sheet, which left me with a few off cuts I will try to use on other projects.

How to…

  • Cut all cardstock and score
  • Designer Series Paper – All pieces are cut from a half sheet of DSP 15 x 30cm (6 x 12″), you need to plan out were you will be cutting first. Cut each piece in order as below, see video.
    1. Cut the Card Base Strip DSP first – this is so you can cut in one strip.
    2. Card Front Panel – Decide how much ground to sky you want to use. Cut your depth 10.2cm (4⅛”) and then work out the width for star placement on your card front.
    3. Remaining DSP- cut Card Base and writing panel strip
  • Stamp sentiment onto Very Vanilla using Night of Navy Ink Pad and die cut using stitched square from Stylish Shapes
  • Adhere the Card Base DSP strip to the small mountain fold and Card Base DSP to larger mountain fold
  • Adhere the Card Front DSP to Card Front.
  • Add glue to the back of the card front…ONLY on the bottom 2cm ( 1″), height of the small mountain.
  • Fold card and adhere the back section of the Card Front to the back of the Card Base, again only approx 1cm (½”)
  • Add sentiment to card base.
  • Attach Nativity Scene with mini dimensionals
  • Writing panel
    • Attach DSP strip along the bottom
    • Adhere the camel, being careful on the amount of glue used.
    • Attach to the back of the Card Base.
  • Add Wink of Stella to star.

    I don’t see where you used the mentioned Berry Burst and Fresh Fresca CS mats.

    Thank you so much for this video. I just made a card like yours and it turned out great. I cut out all my pieces based on your measurement sheet and didn’t have a bit of trouble. I’ll be making more of these. Thanks again.

      I’m so glad to hear that you found the measurements good to work with.
