Easy Cuttlebug frame card

With the snow falling most of the day, I wanted to make a quick winter themed card. I bought a packet of ColorCore Cardstock, which has a lighter version of the outer card stock color for the core. I ran the card stock through a snowflake Cuttlebug embossing folder. I ran sandpaper over the raised areas to reveal the inner core color.
I cut out a section of the card stock following the pattern in the embossing with a craft knife. Placed a winter image under the frame. Added a snowflake brad and a ribbon through a metal buckle. All this is layered on a light grey card.
