Karen Burniston Designer Challenge - Video Techniques: Seamless Backing

It's that time of the month again!  Time for Karen Burniston's Designer Challenge of course.  The team was challenged to use any technique from any of Karen's Pop It Ups videos and use it for a card of any theme.  We are to put a "Spin" on it and make them even better!  I mean how can you make any of Karen's videos better right?  So I decided to double her Seamless Backing technique.
I followed Karen's instructions for the "Outside Border" Seamless Backing and added Glitter Borders around all the edges.  On the tree, I used the embossing paste and the companion dies included in the Evergreen Pivot Card to create depth.  While the embossing paste was still wet I covered it with Solar Gold Silk Microfine Glitter.
For the sentiment, I used a stamp from Karen's Merry & Bright stamped with Versamark and gold embossing powder then die cut with the largest companion die. 

For the inside "Outside Border" I followed the same instructions including die cutting another small portion of the pivot portion of the trees.  To adhere the panels I cut the pivoting portion of the trees, apply liquid glue to the pattern paper & slid them into place.  I cut a small piece of Old Olive to adhere the pivot portion back together.

Here's the view from the back so you see the little patch on the pivoting area.
