Festive 48 - Week 21

I'm trying to take a 'use it or lose it ' approach to my stash now - finding things I have barely used and either using them or getting rid of them.

I found an Anna Griffin stencil - I don't even know where it came from - and thought I'd experiment with it.

Top row - left - the stenci, right - glitter
Bottom row - left - embossed in Big Shot , right - ink on glossy
The glittery panel was made using double-sided adhesive sheets (another 'use it or lose it' item). I sprinkled two colours of glitter through the stencil, took away the stencil and covered it all with irridiscent glitter.

The angel was a silhouette I found online which I traced and cut on the Silhouette. 

Just to recap, I have challenged myself to make a Christmas card every week , and post it here (to make sure I do it!) . If I do this, by the beginning of December I will have 48 Christmas cards. I have also issued an invitation to anyone who would like to join me by linking up ONE card each week. 

This link up is always 'Anything Christmas Goes'. 

Thank you to everyone who's joined me so far. I love seeing your cards. 

I'd like to enter 
Crimbo Crackers  no designer paper 
Oldie but Goodie  filigree (old item is the stencil)
Winter Wonderland no red or green
