Impression Obsession Square Card Challenge

 Hello Friends!!

 It's time for another Impression Obsession challenge.  This weeks challenge is "Square Cards". I chose to create a square gift card holder.
Play along with us and create a SQUARE CARD and you could win a $25 gift certificate to the IO store store, just simply by playing along! Just go to the IO Blog for the details on how to play.  Check out what the talented IO team have created to inspire you.....

This is a super easy gift card holder to create!  Since it's time to start thinking about getting a jump on those Christmas projects again. I used Angel Set DIE209-N and  Peace DIE226-A in Silver Mirror paper on the front. 

IO has new gift card insert dies that makes it easy peasy and super fast to make gift card holders! Yay!!  Today I used Gift Card Insert 1 DIE193-O.    My card was started with an 11" x 4-1/2"  Navy card stock and is scored at 4-1/2" and 9".  To create the closure I added pop dots to back of the circles with the angel, but only on the lower half, leaving 2" from the top so that the flap can be tucked behind the back of the circles.

  Inside is simply stamped with Heavenly Peace C13153.

Thanks for stopping by and have a fantastic day!
