- White card
- Brown paint

Fold an A5 piece of card in half. Splatter the front with brown paint and set aside to dry. Tear lengthways down an old book page. Glue to one half of the card. Create a background by stamping insects in Moonlight White Brilliance Ink onto vellum. Cut a square from this and layer onto brown paper using tape in the centre and two opposite corners where it will be hidden by embellishments. Clip a fancy paper clip onto one corner to conceal the tape and mount the whole onto the card.
Cut an image from the Crafty Individuals book using fancy scissors. Adhere this to the centre of the vellum square. Mount a small tag on brown paper. Set an eyelet in the hole and thread string through. Add a greeting with Dymo. Adhere onto the card.
