10 Minute Gift Topper Card

Another Monday has rolled around which means it's time for a new Kitchen Sink 10 Minute Card Challenge. Today I am sharing a cute little 2 and 1/2 inch card to be used as a gift topper for any occasion.

This card is made using a 7 1/2  by 2 1/2 inch strip of card stock scored at 2.5 inches and 5 inches.

Cutting on the diagonal, remove the bottom half of the first section and the top half of the last section.

Cut two 2 1/4 inch squares of white card stock to stamp a front design and inside sentiment for the card. I stamped my inside sentiment up high so I would have room for a signature.

Place adhesive as shown to attach the stamped front of your card.

Here is what it will look like completed before it is closed on top of your gift.

I put a tiny touch of repositionable adhesive on the front of the back triangle to hold the front gently closed. These are very quick and simple. I had so much fun making them, that I couldn't stop as you can see! LOL!
