A Christmas Card

I mentioned that I received the October releases for Our Daily Bread. Well, I got a chance to play with one of the sets yesterday. It's called "We Three Kings" and I am really liking it for my Christmas cards.

I didn't realize until someone told me that I had these kings falling off their camels! It's too late to change it now. I guess I stamped it the way it fit onto my acrylic block. But, these guys are supposed to be on their way DOWN the hill. I guess I have them stopping their camels and looking UP at the star. Yes, that's it. Oh, well. Live and learn. Other than that, I really like the card. Using this week's sketch on SCS, I got to use up some scraps! I also tried out the technique from this week's tutorial on Splitcoast. It's called Striped Wipe as you use reinkers on a baby wipe and just stripe it across the glossy cardstock. I had to find and dust off my glossy cardstock first. That paper just doesn't come out very often.
Thanks for stopping by!

Absolutely beautiful! It doesn't matter that they're looking at the star. They were, after all, following it to find their Lord and Savior. I'm not sure that I can picture it going down hill. I'm not sure what you mean. But I love the card! And I have two questions - what are reinkers? What do they do? ~Lucy~

Your post made me giggle. Since you didn't have them heading downwards as the stamp apparently intended, I think looking at the sky was a good answer. :D
Loved the background. Very nice card.

Love your card Angel! Gorgeous effect you achieved! I would imagine one would lean back a bit while aboard a camel! Looking at the star for sure, you are a hoot! Deb

I thought the guys on the camels were looking "on high" not "from being high" lol No one knows how to ride a camel, really.... I love the stamp. I have already voted for your 31 days, but here is my comment to enter. That is a great candy package!! Keep the wonderful designs coming! Linda Crowder
