Happy Hour Background Panels

Hi Bloggers.

Here's today's card -

Another really easy card to make. I cut 3 strips of Coconut White Card. I cut the central panel from the Happy Hour Background into each one. I matted them all onto Black Card.

I embossed a piece of Coconut White Card using the Couture Creations Velvet Tea Lights Embossing Folder. I matted onto Black Card and then another piece of Coconut White Card.

I cut the sentiments from the 3D Cosmopolitan Cocktail Die Set out of Black Card.

I completed my card by adding a 5mm Black Pearl to each corner of my embossed background, edging with CS Glue and adding CS Crystal Chips.

  7. This shows, rather nicely, that you need only to use part of a die to make a great card.

    Although I am not a fan of the Happy Hour Background die I really like your layout and colour and will try it with another panel die. Thanks for sharing.

    I received my Friday Freebie lucky win yesterday.This card is gorgeous and although it was beautiful on screen...meeting it in person takes it to another level. Thank you so much, Julia. I will treasure it.
