I get a list of cards at the start year from my cousin Claire with who the recipient is and their birthday. I've almost completed the list for the year and have just 4 left to do - this is one of them! It's for her Brother-In-Law so I've kept it quite simple and embossed the cardstock directly with Swiss Dots - the join bit where the folder didn't reach is covered with the string.
The image is from Tiddly Inks and I've coloured it with Promarkers and then added liquid pearls for the spots. I've layered it onto some offcuts of card I found in my stash and then added the Marianne die - its supposed to be icicles but I use it for grass - underneath.
