Christmas camels

   My second Christmas card for the year! So much for my resolution of making my Christmas cards early.
   I folded a piece of card which was two units wide and three units long in half and then cut one half into three equal portions, giving me three square sections. The two outer portions I scored and folded diagonally and the middle portion scored and folded horizontally to form a tri-easel card.
   I matted and layered paper Noel printed from Debbie Moore's Songs for Christmas CD ROM and brown core'dination cardstock onto white card to form the base.
   Middle easel: I dusted white card with distress inks and matted this onto dark brown core'dinations cardstock. I then cut the nativity scene out from brown mirri card using a Cottage Cutz die. Glitter was added for the stars before mounting it onto the centre easel.
   Outside easels: I used the digi image 'King1 - Time to go' from Digistamps4joy. The image on the right was created by flipping the original image and then placing a smaller image behind it. Both images were coloured using Promakers and a gold gel pen. The background was coloured using distress inks and glitter was again added for stars. They were matted onto dark brown core'dinations cardstock before attaching to the easel base.
   All three easel stops were made from layers of core'dination cardstock and gold lettering spelling Noel.
