Peaceful Nativity Bundle – Theater Card

Hi and welcome today to my Blog.

Peaceful Nativity Bundle

In my Card Making Class today we made this wonderful ‘Theater Card’ using the Peaceful Nativity Bundle ..and we had fun!

I had seen this style of card earlier this year and loved it…but just hadn’t found the products I wanted to use for it. Then the Stampin’ Up! ® 2020 Aug- Jan Mini Catalogue came out and as soon as I saw the Peaceful Nativity Bundle I knew this was what I wanted to do. So back in August I had decided on the stamp/dies bundle and even the Designer Series Paper…Brightly Gleaming Specialty Designer Series Paper…..I just hadn’t made the card as yet!

Then this week I had such a busy week I just hadn’t had time to make a card and prepare before the class…So what did I do…I knew what card I wanted to make and I had a link to the instructions. So I made a quick dummy card before the class started, just to make sure I knew what I was doing and so I could be aware of any problem areas.Good thing I did …..any problems that could happen where sorted. Great!

So everyone started with some cardstock and we all made the card together. It was a lot of fun and I think everyone enjoyed it. It gave everyone a chance to see how I design a card (layout wise, as the how to make the card was already done by someone else).

The tutorial I used is by Laurence Mirman, the link to here page is below for you to see https://lolascrapetcompagnie.blogspot

Her instructions were very good and translated well with the help of Google.

The only change I made was to make the two sliding panels at the front (Screen) slightly narrower. Laurence said to cut 4 pieces 10.5 x 14.8cm – one for the back, one for the very front and two for the moving screen.I cut down the two for the screen down to 10.2 x 14.8cm. By removing those couple of millimeters meant it fitted easier through the mechanism at the back a little better.


  • The stable and trees were die cut using Soft Suede cardstock
  • Star – Gold Brushed Metallic Cardstock
  • Jesus, Mary, Joseph and animals were stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black and coloured with Stampin’ Blends

This is a great interactive card, starting with a closed front you pull the tabs at each side and the screen opens up to reveal the beautiful scene of the Nativity. Here’s a 5 second video showing you how the finished card works.

I love it when a card like this goes together so well ( No mess ups in the me!..LOL)…Mind you next time the class will be prepared well in advance.
