Decorating the tree was always an exciting event when I was little. We always had a live tree (why oh why don't I do that now?) and it would take a bit of time to fill it full of decorations. Not the matchy-matchy ones but ones that had meaning. The best ones were saved for last and they were the beaded icicles, as we called them. We'd hang them by the little colorful lights and they would make the whole tree glimmer and shine.
Silver embossing adds a lot to a card but dang, it is hard to photograph. Let's overlook that part shall we? This card is based off the sketch and colors at Jazzy Paper Designs, in which Schlosser Designs is sponsoring! For this clean and graphic card, I started by stamping the smallest of the hexagons from Hexagon-A-Thon by Schlosser Designs with watermark ink and then silver embossed them. After punching holes in both the ornaments and card base, I strung them with red thread.
