Double Bonus Christmas

2013_05_25DSCI0222 2013_05_25MG_1574 Today is our sister Blair’s birthday but it is also the 25th of the month so that means it’s time to post a Christmas card or 2.  Since it’s Blair’s birthday we are posting 2 cards using retiring Stampin Up products.

The blue card was made by Cammie when she was going crazy with her retiring Perfectly Preserved stampset #126692.  Cammie used the glimmer watermark pad and silver embossing powder #126857 to stamp all the images on this card including the trees from the Lovely as a Tree stamp set #127793.  In case you did not know it the Lovely as a Tree stampset is the oldest stamp in the Stampin Up catalog and is a must have set that is NOT retiring.

The second card is my Christmas card.  So sorry for the busy background but chevrons are hot right now so why not use it as a background?  My card is a simple santa suit.  The beard was cut using Apothecary Accents  framelits #127003 and then I stamped the sentiment from the retiring stampset, Just Believe #120453 stampset.  I just bought this set and am sad that it is going away.
