Allsorts week 16

It's Saturday and that means time for the new Allsorts challenge and this weeks it's Amanda's turn the select the theme and one to really make us think, no stamped image on your card.

So I decided to use the Cricut, it's been feeling a bit neglected lately other than being used for the odd greeting or shaped card. As I really like this santa and sleigh on the Christmas solutions cartridge I have based my card around him.

The background has been created with my favourite's.......yes of course, Glimmer Mists. I used silver as the base, masked a moon and eversparayed with midnight, denim and lemon zest, removed the mask and gave the whole piece a final spray of pearl. The church, cottage and trees are also cut on the same cartridge as santa from gloss black cardstock and the snowy roofs etc from a white glitter card. The greeting is from wild card. I added estra snow using diamond glaze and Judikins snow glitter.
