Dank U Sinterklaasje

Hallo Allemaal

5 december komt er weer aan en sinds afgelopen zaterdag zingen we hier weer vollop sinterklaasliedjes. Dus ik wou nu ook een sint snijden met de cricut. Maar ja een cricut heeft geen nederlandse cartridges en dus geen sinterklaas. Maar ik heb wel de paper doll cartridges. En met een beetje puzzelen heb ik een sinterklaas kunnen maken zo groot als een snijmat.

Dank U Sinterklaasje
At the fantabulous cricut challenge blog they ask for a thank you card. But instead of a card I made a thank you lay out. The lay out needs some explanation for thos who don't know our dutch tradition of Sinterklaas. Sinterklaas (Saint Nicolas) arives with a boat on a saturday 3 weeks before the 5th of december. In those 3 weeks children receive gifts in their shoes. The placing of the shoe comes with a lot of singing. on december fifth is the big receiving with a bag full of gifts. And ofcourse with singing and saying thanks to Sinterklaas also known as sint. This layout is already made for one of thos picture to be made on december 5. The translation of Dank U Sint is Thank you sint. I hope that the lay out can enter even though it's not a card. And if not thanks for watching and hopefully enjoying some dutch folklore.

cartridges used /gebruikte cartridges:
Plantin Schoolbook
Every day paper dolls
Paper doll dress up
Mickey font

Ik hoop dat jullie hem leuk vinden.
I hope you all like it.

groetjes, greetings
