1. Adhere the silver cardstock over the center of the white cardstock piece.
2. Adhere the dark red cardstock piece over the center of the silver piece.
3. Print and cut the tree motif out of silver cardstock.
4. Cut four 5 cm lengths of silver wire. String two wires with each 3 beads, one wire with 2 beads and the remaining piece with just one bead. Bead the wires by inserting the wire through the first bead and then insert the wire through again to secure the bead. Add the second bead about 1 cm away and secure the same way and proceed like this with any additional bead.
5. Place each wire in a diagonal way on the front of the tree. The wires with each 3 beads are placed at the bottom of the tree, then the wire with 2 beads and at the top, the wire with just one bead. Secure each of the wire ends with tape on the backside of the tree.
6. Adhere the tree now to the card using foam tape to raise the tree and give it dimension.
