Simple Evergreen Pivot Pop It Ups Christmas Cards

Karen Burniston challenged us to made a simpler card as well, for her July's Christmas Designer Challenge, and I came up with this one. (I made it while cooking dinner - during the in between bits - it was truly a very quick card!)
 I think the Evergreen Pivot Card die set is perfect for quick cards - one run through the die cutting machine for the pop out elements, another run through for the three layered trees, then just stick a few embellishments on. (The gift  & bow dies also comes with the Evergreen Pivot die set.) Most the dies used here are due out soon at Elizabeth Craft Designs.

I also chose to emboss my trees, and add a layer of glitter card stock at the bottom (cut with one of the new Outdoor Edges dies), plus 2 strips of the same patterned card stock to cover the gaps at the back of the card left by the pivot cut.

The card front.

I then decided to make the same card again, this time in different colours, and instead of gold confetti snowflakes, I used the snowflake dies from Karen's Spiral Circle Pull Card.
