Sparkles Christmas: A Krafty Christmas

Hi, everyone! It's the first of the month... which means it's time for a new Sparkles Christmas Challenge!

The theme for this month is A Krafty Christmas was chosen by our Sparkles Christmas fearless leader Caz. And, we can't wait to see how your incorporate kraft into your holiday creations.

For my card, I stamped white snowflakes, pressing the sentiment strip on the ink pad to get the same white-on-kraft look. I'm actually pleased that the blue snowflake turned out as well as it did. It's one of those embossing-cutting combo dies that I've never quite gotten to work out before.
