Joy Nativity in a Z Fold Card

Hello Blogger Friends! Thanks for taking the time to stop and visit with the Charmed Life Blog.
It's going to be a busy Saturday here at my house. I was recruited to help decorate our church this morning. Then the afternoon and evening I have plans to finish up my Christmas cards.
My hubby will be at work until 11:00 pm so I should be able to work without interruptions. 
For today's card, I am showing the sample I made for my weekly DT post on the CottageCutz Blog. For this post, I decided to make a Z-Fold card and feature the Joy Nativity and Angel Trio dies. So lets get started with some details on this card.

Step 1: This week I started my card with the fancy fold I wanted to use. I like the Z-Fold and thought it would work well with the dies I wanted to showcase. This fold makes a very nice card presentation and is not difficult at all to make.

Dark Brown Card Base: 5 1/2" x 8 1/2"
Step 2: Cut 2 pieces of patterned paper- one is 3" x 5 1/2" and the other is 1 1/4" x 5 1/2".
Attach the 3" piece to the cardstock between the scored lines.
Turn the card over and line-up the 1 1/4" patterned paper to the corner of the card.
Used my bone folder and reinforced the scores that I made on the cardstock. I folded back the score line on the 1 1 /4" panel and now I have my Z-Fold card.

Step 3: I created the front panel for my card. I used one of the angels from the Angel Trio die and on the square panels I used the Stitched Square (4th largest) and the Square Set (3rd largest) dies.
Assembled the square panels and attached the angel with dimensional adhesive.
I used doubled sided tape and attached the panel to the 1 1/4" panel.

Step 4: Now onto the inside of the card. I used the Joy Nativity die for the inside panel. I also used another of the angels from the Angel Trio die.
Attached the pieces to the card inside with glue dots and Ranger Multi medium matte adhesive. After I attached the kneeling angel I decide to add a few pine sprays to ground the image. I also added some stars to this panel. I used the stars from the Snowglobe Friends die.
I also added stars to the front image panel to complete my card. And, that's it for me for this post. I hope I have given you an additional idea for a Christmas card. So until next time.......God bless.
