Crumple pieces of tissue paper (a little messy is fine) and glue to the branch with a hot glue gun, closer to the ends of the twig, giving an appearance of a budding flower. Let it the glue cool.

Glue the insect to the branch (don't cover the tissue buds), and  glue the branch into the window of the card, sticking the ends under the first layer of paper so it looks like part of a longer branch

• Use red and black colors, a dark stick with a "web" made by using the glue gun glue across the branches in a web design, then place a spider made of pipe cleaners for a card excellent for Halloween.
