I also heat embossed "Let's Hang Out" (from Lawn Fawn's "for you, deer" set) at the bottom right corner of the card. I randomly dropped some white Tonic Nuvo crystal dots on the dark grey background to mimic snow. I used the "for you, deer" set to create two book marks - deer and bear, and insert them into the pocket I created. Below is another look of the card:


The card recipient can pull out these two little critters as the bookmarks to use. I coloed them with Copic markers. Below is the look of the cute bookmarks:
