LEARN HOW TO MAKE A CHRISTMAS NATIVITY CONCERTINA CARD USING YOUR CRICUT CUTTING MACHINE
A few years ago, my Grandma sent us a beautiful Christmas card featuring The Nativity. It was a beautiful card. One of my favorites from that year.
It really stuck with me and when I sat down to start designing Christmas cards this year, I knew I wanted to create something with some of the features in that card.
This card features a concertina, or zig-zag, fold. When the card is in the envelope, it all folds into a 5×7 card size. When you take it out, you can open the card up featuring this beautiful Nativity scene and sweet holiday sentiment.
In this tutorial, I’ll give you my step by step instructions and tell you what materials I think work best when making this project.
