I created this double flip Christmas tree card over a year ago but I could never get it to work. Recently I have been going through my old projects and reworking the ones I couldn’t figure out to see if I’ve gotten any better. I guess I have because I fixed it.
This card features four different trees, each with a different pattern. It is truly a testament to the advice to keep trying, you will figure it out.
You will need:
- Heavy cardstock for the base
- various scraps of cardstock

The base card of this double flip Christmas Tree Card needs to be two sided because you see a little bit of both sides. And the base and the inlays both really needs to be a solid color or they will clash with the other patterns. You might try embossing the red panels for some extra glamour.
The patterns are all print then cut images. If your printer will take cardstock use it. If not, it still looks OK, but cardstock looks better.
Cutting the card
Cricut will print/cut the trees. If the cardstock isn’t white the color will bleed through. This may work for you or not. The candy canes are delicate and tear easily so be careful removing them from the mat.
Assembling the Double Flip Christmas Tree card
First Re-crease all the folds and make sure the card works properly. When closed, both tress should overlap.
Then glue a tree to each side of the tree shaped flipper. Be sure to line them up well so that the card works properly. Then attach the candy canes however you like to the red panels before you glue them onto the card.
Finally, glue the rectangle with the words to the center.
Check to make sure the card works properly. Either tree can be on top when closed.
And your Double Flip Christmas Tree Card is done! It fits in an A7 envelope for mailing. Enjoy!
