Spring is almost here, and what better way to celebrate than with cheerful cocktails with friends…


Friendly Cocktails


We love to host a good happy hour…whether sipping fresh squeezed strawberry lemonade or a signature white peach sangria, any excuse to get together with friends is a worthwhile event in our book!

A fun invite can come in the form of a traditional card, served up with a twist:

  1. Die cut a Shapes: Circle from a large sticky note, and adhere to the card base.
  2. Use the open area to stamp the Happy Hour text bar to create a subtle circle background.
  3. Remove the mask to complete the card with the By the Glass image stamped on the coordinating die.
  4. Adhere the die over a stamped/colored cherry, and a banner sentiment using Favor Flags with a sentiment stamped from Taglines: By the Glass.

You can even leave cute little reminders by way of mini note cards. The Taglines: By the Glass set is a great size to create small patterns and backgrounds.

  1. Create a 3″ square card base from Pressed Greige Linen cardstock.
  2. Cut a 2.75″ I Steel Got It cardstock panel, and stamp with glass image in rows alternating the direction in Perfect Little Black Dress ink.
  3. Stamp the bubble image on select glasses in the same ink.
  4. Outline the glasses with a marker to add a bit of subtle dimension.
  5. Adhere a simple sentiment stamped onto a strip of In the Limelight cardstock.

And if an invite isn’t enough to entice your guest to mix and mingle, add in a mini cocktail mixer. Dress up simple syrups and other cocktail mixes with a fun paper straw and pretty ribbon.

You can even give out a set of paper straws as favors from your happy hour soiree like we shared {here}. Say “so long” to the winter blahs, and host a fun springtime gathering to catch up over drinks with friends…
