Krafty Snowflakes

This set was created for today's sketch challenge on SCS... and also yesterday's color challenge. I really love this color combo, kraft, white and pomegranate. All of the layers of kraft were embossed with white embossing powder. The center snowflake was embossed on kraft then cut out. I put gold ice stickles over the top so it's nice and sparkly.




The box design is from Nichole Heady's website - it's such an easy box to make! I decorated the sides with pom and white, then the top was done to match the front of the card.

When I was making this card I realized how nice the textured cardstock is for distressing! I have a yarn cutter that I use to distress with... it's a round pendant that has grooves to cut the yarn, but in this case I just just run it along the paper and it shreds the edge nicely.



Thanks for looking and let me know what you think!
