Drink Shaker Matchbook Card
Check out this fun card! I needed a way to package up a gift card that was just enough for a couple of drinks on her next night out. When I came across this cut file I knew this shaker card would be a perfect fit. This little card would also work perfectly for an invitation to a night out on the town.
Being my first shaker card I wasn't prepared for the static, so if you are inexperienced like I was I suggest having a product like the Inkadinkado Embossing Magic pouch. The card you see here was actually my second and final attempt due to the unexpected static. The static from the acetate can make it difficult if not impossible for the filler of the shaker to actually shake. I had chosen to use sequence to fill my shaker, which probably didn't help with the static, and added the button to act as the lime in the margarita.
The cut file for the Drink Shaker Matchbook was purchased through http://svgcuttingfiles.com/. The sentiment on the card is from the stamp set Hello Hello by http://www.jadedblossom.com/.
