Koala Bear Punch Art with Retiring Top Note Die

The Retirement Lists have been posted.  If you're new to Stampin'UP! you may be wondering what the fuss is all about. Well, our annual catalog expires the end of May. In order to make room in the warehouse and in the new catalog for some wonderful amazing new product, it means we have to let go of some old favorites.  See the Retirement List here.

Today's project is this adorable Koala Bear card. Oh my gosh! He is so cute.  I just got him recently in a demonstrator trade, he's made by Tina Petko

Tina went all out on her project.
This card is actually a gift card holder.  How cool is that?

In our demo group when we do a punch art trade we always include the "recipe", 
so I'm posting that for you here too.
Recipe for the Punch Art Koala Bear card made with the Top Note Die

Don't you love how easy it is to read this punch art recipe? This project showcases 2 retiring products: The Top Note Die and the Blossom Punch.  I'm really gonna miss them.  They're both really versatile. You can do so much with them. Oh and I just noticed, his nose is the Small Oval punch which is also retiring.

As a demonstrator I stop using product after it retires.  Only because I can't sell it anymore.  But YOU can use it and love it forever!  And speaking of loving something - most of the retiring tools are on sale.  The Blossom Punch for example was $16.95 and its on sale for only $8.48.  Wow!  If you like saving money it might be worth it to spend some time browsing the retirement pages.

FYI - re availability: Stamps are guaranteed available through May 26th. After that its "while supplies last".  And paper, ink, tools and embellishments are all only available until they're gone.  In fact some stuff is already gone so don't delay - check the list now.
