1.  Cut & Prepare:
~Cherry Cobbler card base 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″.  Score and fold at 4-1/4″.
~Cherry Cobbler card front at 4″ x 5-1/4″.  Use a Layering Circle Framelit to cut a circle from the center.  Cut Foam Adhesive Strips and put them on the back around the circle cut out AND along the back outside edges.
~Night of Navy background.  Cut 3-7/8″ x 3-7/8″.  Stamp the swirly starlight stamp in Whisper White craft ink to make the night sky stars to go behind the cut out city part.
~Very Vanilla cardstock:  Cut one Tall City edgelit and one Short City edgelit.
~Night of Navy-cut out the Mary and Joseph silouette.
~Optional:  If you do not have a Mini Gift Bow, cut out the Star from Daffodil Delight cardstock.
2.  Assemble your card.
~You will be mounting the city pieces on the back of your Cherry Cobbler card front using the Foam Adhesive Strips you put around the cut out Circle and Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals on the back of the city pieces.  Cut the city pieces along the outside of the Foam Adhesive Strips that are around the Circle cut out so they do not touch the outside edge Foam Adhesive Strips.
~Use the Short City piece first.  Place one edge of the city along the bottom of the circle looking at it from the front.  When it is in the position you like, attach to the Foam Adhesive Strips.  Cut off the part that does not show.  Put Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals on the back of the cut City Piece attached to the card front.
~Attach the cut off part of the Short City behind the first part of the short city.  Put Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals on the back of this short city piece.
~Now for the Tall City Parts.  Attach one part of the Tall city.  Cut off the excess.  Put Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals on the back.  Now attach the rest of the Tall City piece.  Put Stampin’ Dimensionals on the back.
~Attach the Night of Navy background to behind your city cut out.  It will attach to both the Foam Adhesive strips around the circle and the Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals behind the city parts.  Trim the edges if necessary so they do not stick out beyone the outside edges of the outside Foam Adhesive Strips.
~Lay your card front down so you see the back.  Look to see how even the level is.  Are there parts that stick above the outside Foam Adhesive Strips?  If not, just attach with the one layer of Foam Adhesive Strips.  If parts do stick up above the Foam Adhesive Strips, then add a second layer of Foam Adhesive Strips around the outside edges.
~Attach to card base centering the card front.
~Now Glue on Mary and Joseph.
~Attach the Mini Gift Bow or star.
Your card is finished!  Admire your artistic accomplishment and work of art!!
