Never eat yellow snow!

"Never eat yellow snow" - a very wise piece of advice and one that sprang to mind when I saw the new challenge at Christmas Card Throwdown, which is the rather unusual Christmas colour combo of Kraft, gold and yellow. So naturally I had to include yellow snow on my card!

I CASed the layout of this card from one I found in Pinterest when I was searching for inspiration and ideas for using the Stampin Up Cookie Cutter Christmas set. That card was very clean and simple though, whereas mine is packed with colour, texture and bling!

The yellow snow itself is embossed with a Darice folder and the gold layer with a magazine freebie folder. The corrugated Kraft is a snippet of packaging from an olive oil bottle. I've added gold ribbon, die cut pine sprigs and droplet stickers that came in a kit many, many years ago.

I am sharing this with
