snapd is the tool that gets you the "snap" command ... 
(i.e: "snap install $package.snap") and is needed to run snaps ...

snapcraft is the tool to build snaps ... you dont need snapd to build a
snap so it is no dependency of snapcraft ... but i assume you want to
try out your snaps once you built them, for that you need to install
snapd ...
