This card features the “impossible fold” that is all over the internet right now. A company out of the UK shared a video a couple of months ago and card makers have jumped all over it and adapted the idea for different sizes.

Today is the last day to order items that are retiring. Some items are already gone, but the lions-share of retiring products are still available. To be able to get yours, you can go here to check out the options. First and foremost I want to call your attention to the colors that are retiring. Of course the old In Colors are retiring (mostly), but Stampin’ Up! is doing a color revamp with the new catalog so several of the core colors are retiring also. If you want to get any of these colors, grab your cardstock, ink, ink refill, etc. now. Here’s the list of the colors that will be gone tomorrow:
The products that I used on this card that are retiring are the Marina Mist cardstock and ink and the pretty Designer Series paper from the Occasions catalog. That gorgeous paper is even on sale for 20% off! The Teeny Tiny Wishes stamp set that I used for the greeting on the front panel is retiring and the other stamps are currently available as a bundle, which is retiring. Just to be clear, the products in the bundle will continue to be available in the new catalog, but the bundle pricing will be gone.
