Close To My Heart Artfully Sent Cricut Cartridge Nativity Scene Pop-Up card

Hello, friends! 

Close To My Heart Artfully Sent Cricut Cartridge Nativity Scene Pop-Up card
Today, I have a Christmas card made using the Close To My Heart Artfully Sent Cricut Cartridge. Yes, I know you are thinking, "It is very early to start these, Melanie". However, I really wanted to make this card! It is the most perfect Christmas card to send my family and it was so easy to make. Just wait until you see the inside of the card!

Make sure you take a look at the stamp set I used for this card. It was absolutely perfect!

When making these pop-up cards, it is a good idea to have some kind of scoring tool like a score board. I found that using the scoring function on my Explore (using the scoring stylus) in conjunction with a score board was the way to go for me. The Cricut does a light scoring and then I deepen it will the score board

  Here are the cutting details from the handbook.


Here is the Explore file.

This is a lovely card. Just wondering: Do all of the components of the card import into DS at the coordinating sizes or do we have to get them by inserting a special "number code" like for the previous 3 carts?

Your card is so elegant! I love the colours and the simplicity of the style. The nativity is so finely detailed and I like the white cutout for the star and the front greeting.
If you are doing pop up cards with all these pieces you would need to start early. Thank you for sharing your beautiful work! :)
