The Magic of Christmas Seen Through the Eyes of a Child

One of Create with TLC's new images is Embrace the Magic which I loved and knew I just had to play with it. 

just look at those two children looking out the window and what do you suppose they saw - if you look very very closely you just may see Santa . . . 

  • red Recollection card stock was cut for 4.25 x 11 which was folded in half for a 4.25 x 5.5 inch card
  • The Paper Stack Old World Winter is the background along with the background where Santa and his sleigh and sentiment are
  • I printed the children on vellum then colored using Whisper Strokes Markers with gel pen accents - now, this has to dry at least overnight to make sure everything is dry before assembling card
  • "Christmas when we all get to be kids" is from Create with TLC Get to Be a Kid which was chalked around the edges
  • the little Santa and is sleigh which shows through the front was from Create with TLC Winter/Christmas Club last year and was colored using Spectrum Noir Markers, Whisper Strokes and gel pen accents and chalked around the edges
  • frame was cut using Cricut Heritage Cartridge and dark grey Recollection cardstock with Queen & Co. black pearls in the corners and a little bow at the top
Christmas as seen through the eyes of a child - embrace the magic!!!
