Graffiti Christmas

Hello and Welcome.
Meet today's card.  
I wanted to make a masculine holiday card and this is what I came up with.

One of my favorite techniques that is fun and easy is called
Basically what you do is ink the inside of your eb folder, spray with water and press onto your paper.
Here, I used an embossing folder from Carabelle and inked it with Distress inks to create my background.  Love how it came out and a wonderful way to get more mileage from your folders!
Next, I die cut the snowflake from SSS and heat embossed it using silver powder.
To help it pop, I mounted it over a small piece of vellum that I rounded the corners on to match the shape of the die.
Stamped the sentiment from Paper Smooches using my Misti and done.
