Folded Christmas Tree Card

I saw a few of these folded trees last year, but never got around to trying it.  Until this past weekend, that is.  I CASEd this card on Inkspired Treasures blog.  She has a pdf for the pattern for folding here.   I practiced with copy paper before messing up a piece of designer paper and my first one still isn't perfect.  You can see at the top left that I didn't folded it quite right.  But I still think the card is still presentable.
You need to cut a 5-14/" circle (I used an old non SU cutting system).  Then cut that circle in half and make 3 folds.  I had a scrap of the paper used on this card big enough for 1 circle which yielded 2 trees.  I had a whole sheet of another pattern from the same pack, which made 8 more trees.  After a few, I finally got it down.
The original card used a gold glitter brad for the top of the tree, but it just wasn't working for me.  I remembered that my new Holiday Framelits has a little star in it. So I used that with Silver Glimmer paper and I like it much better.
