The 4-sided angle base is much better for a side-fold card. I mentioned in the video that the palm tree base gives an elongated tree, so it will look lovely in top fold but not as lovely in a side fold. The Christmas Tree Pop-up looks great in either a side fold or a top fold, but you do have to allow for the diagonal collapse. But with base swapping you have the best of both worlds!
