Gatefold tree....

I've used a popular kind of fold for this card- a standard gatefold, but I went a little further with this one and punched the short edges of the cardstock with an EK Success border punch before I scored and folded it. I matted some script paper (Papermania) onto some gold mirri and adhered it each of the fronts. I then cut a shaped panel from gold spotted red paper (Papermania) with a gold mirri mat. I wrapped ribbon around it, then adhered another shaped mat, this time embossed, onto it with foam pads. I found the tree on Designer's Calendar and cut it from gold lirri, then added self-adhesive pearls for baubles. The completed tree was adhered with foam pads to the embossed panel.
I glittered a Helibore flower from here and along with some punched gold leaves and a couple of red roses adhered them with silicone glue to the top corner of the panel.
To finish the inside of the card I matted a piece of deep red paper onto gold mirri and added a shaped sentiment panel.
