November Pop it Ups Designer Challenge - Double Evergreen Pivot Christmas Tree Card

The theme for November's Designer Challenge is to create a card based on one of Karen Burniston's previous DC Technique Videos. If you haven't watched one of Karen's videos before, you are missing out! She creates great tutorials which are well made and so easy to follow.

I followed Karen's directions, using a piece of card 12'' x 5.5'' (from K&Co's 'Christmas Cheer' 12x12 pad), and a Martha Stewart score board to create the folds needed, prior to die cutting. 
The card ends up looking like this from above - a really pretty combination of folds and pivoting panels!

For my version, I cut two decorative layers for each of the trees. I stuck one on with foam pads, and the other I folded in half, and glued on just along the crease line.
I stuck on glitter card stars to the outer four trees.
I stuck on extra strips of cardstock behind the gaps left by the pivoting trees.

I then added decorative strips made with a die from the Agatha Edges set, and made little arrangements with leaves from the ECD Candle set, in the centre of each. I also glued on metal bells (from eBay) with Bakers Twine tied in each.
I used grey ink and a foam applicator to ink around the edges of the card and all the pieces.
