Very many thanks to Cheryl for gifting me some of her ODBD stamps! I knew that both the sentiments in this set would be great to use with this border. I was thinking of making four of these for my October quota of Christmas cards, but unless I can find out a way not to need to do partial die-cutting, this will be a one-off for my mother-in-law.
I more or less used the Diorama card tutorial linked here, but my inside piece isn't a smaller window. I used partial die-cutting on the front and middle piece to make a frame with the nativity scene, and then removed the manger and one wise man from the front section, and the shepherds and two wise men from the middle section.
The back is simply white card with the sentiment stamped and embossed, and then I used turquoise, yellow and violet Brushos - and it looks as if I must have used another colour too unless that's the bleed from the violet.

I admire this card for many reasons. First it is striking with the scene you created. You took two techniques that give me many problems....brusho's and 3D cards or fancy folds, and created a masterpiece. Pinned and fav'd to admire.
