Cheers Cocktail Card



Hi bloggers!  The Happy Hour Background die gives you both positive and negative cut outs.  It looks lovely as a background or used as borders or individual small die cuts.  Today's video will show you one way to use this versatile die set.














 The finished dimensions are 7 1/2" x  7 3/4" in size.  All for now, Sue x

Hi Sue. Great card and can be used for many occasions. The only problem I have and have had from the day of launch is making out what the 'wastecoat' shapes are ? Sorry if that sounds a bit stupid but all I can see is the odd wastecoat I'm certain that when someone points it out to me my brain will see it too lol. Really looking forward to watching the tutorial once my keeper takes 4paws out for her first walk of the day.
Whatever your plans for the day hope it's a great day and I'm sure my love and hugs will find their way lol xxx

Such a pretty pink for the tall drink.

If these were dog shapes instead of bar glasses, I could really go for this card.

Best to all!

Hi Sue,

Such a fun card and those cocktail look good enough to drink. The only thing that would make them better is my being able to share one with you. Thanks for all the tips in the video.

Have a wonderful day.

Kitty Davies said...

Morning Sue.
Thank you a great card and video.
Just like Steph I could see the black on white, it took a while to see the other one.
I think this is a die set to see in real life, when we can see the stitching detail.
Take care and have fun kitty.

Hello Sue and all
Oh, I can almost taste the salt on that cocktail, reminds me of margaritas on holiday last year, fabulous Mexican restaurant at Dana Point Harbour. Off to watch the video, have friends and family that this will suit perfectly

Good morning Sue. "Cheers" for another inspirational card and video. Sue xxx

Marion Scott said...

Great card Sue and can be used for so many celebrations.

I too had problems seeing glasses on the top and bottom line - middle was fine. I think it is probably due to the white coming into the foreground on our screens. I don't have this die but when it was first released, I too thought it was a row of waistcoats.

carol edwards said...

Hello Sue, great card can only imagine a bit of warm weather to go with it, perfect. The card does give an illusion to wine glasses or waistcoats, it depends if you adjust your eye a bit you can see both X

Clai01 said...

Hi Sue
love the cocktail glasses and the things that go with them esp like the straw. x

Sandy G said...

Hi Sue
Lovely card. Just like Steph, I could only see the negative white shapes at first! It took a few looks to see the black glasses! Thanks for sharing.
Have a great day everyone.
Hugs.

Izzy said...

Hi Sue,

Great card for any celebration!

Steph - don't look at the "waistcoat" pieces, concentrate on the shapes in between...it took me ages too before my brain worked it out...lol

Good Morning Sue and all.
Fantastic card this morning . The cocktails glasses is one of my favourite sets and I have enjoyed playing with them. I have only just clicked that is cocktail glasses in the back ground. I have to admit never really clicked it was glasses but can see it now. Thank you for doing the video which I will be saving.
Crafty hugs and well wishes to all...Wendy

Good morning Sue fabulous card the cocktails look delicious! Yes at firSt I couldn't see the glasses in the background but when I concentrated on the black shapes then the glasses became clear
Hope you all have a good day

Pauline Austen said...

Hi Sue, what a brilliant card. It's definitely making us really look at your background. Reminds me of sitting with my neice looking for "Where's Wally?" in her picture book. You've really concentrated our minds today.
I could just drink those cocktails. Hugs xx Pauline in S.A.

Karen M said...

Hi Sue & everyone
Really missing being able to see this blog,but back in sunny Devon next week & better communication!!! it's not good here in this part of WA.
Loved your video & the card could do with something long & cool!
Best wishes everyone

Fluffycat said...

Hi Sue, as I have said previously I am not a cocktail drinking gal but I have to say that you have made these look inviting and quite delicious. We have sunshine today to go with the summery feel of your card but not yet the temperature to sit out and enjoy :-)

Maria Alder said...

Hi Sue and everyone.
Either seeing waistcoats or in my case "pairs" even know they are green Lol
I can now see the cocktail glasses on the shelfs. Nice card and make you
want to be on holiday.

Ann- glad you ok, hope not too sore after your fall x
Marie- good idea to leave a wishlist out so you can then just
tick off when you get them. I will try that Lol
Pam, Rosemarie, Elaine. Lorraine and many more, missing you all.
Hoping you are alright x
hugs Maria x

karenlotty said...

A very pretty card Perfect for lots of age groups and perhaps with a slight change is perfect for those pesky men

CraftyJo said...

They're not waistcoats Steph....surely they're big fat cats?! I can now see what they are thanks to all who explained :)

Lisbeth said...

Hi Sue. What a really lovely fun card. I can think if so many occasions when a card like this could be used.

Suzzette Yandle said...

Very creative elements to this card. Thanks for the helpful video.

Evis M said...

Hi Sue,
I am afraid that when I look at the background I see dress pattern shapes and
it takes a bit of time to see the glasses.
The large glasses are lovely though especially the pretty pink one.
Regards,
Evis M.

ursula said...

Wow, another great idea....I too get confused with the background....Lovely card...luv Ursula xx

Steph Cotterill said...

Oh my goodness Sue. Is it just my eyes playing tricks on me I wonder ? It's like those brain tease books that you eventually see various shapes. I blink and look away,then see wastecoates,far cats or dress patterns lol blink and then see the cocktail glass shapes, what an amazing illusion lol xx

Such a cool card! I love it!

Crewe Trish said...

Hello Sue
I love the cocktail glasses they make such different cards but I can't get my head around the background this is the first die I haven't liked sorry.
Donita I love your idea for dogs I have 2 granddogs who I always make birthday cards for.

Barbara said...

Beautiful card Sue!
Like a lot of others I struggled with the background and wasn't that keen on it. It is now growing on me and I love the vellum.

Dorothy Macdonald said...

Good evening Sue

Nice card for my female friends who love cocktails.

I do love cards with vellum.

Thanks for the video too (you know I love to watch them).

Love n hugs to everyone

Beautiful card Sue and a super video. I am not usually a cocktail person But the card sent messages to my brain reminding me of my last years birthday (86th) when I was on holiday with my Daughter and she introduced me to cocktails mmmm.
Did you realise that you had invented a new 'Brain Game?'
I do love reading all the comments when I can get my eye to focus.
Love.
