Shaker Coffee Gift Card Holder



I'd never made a shaker card, but this week's Make It Monday technique video showed me that really it's totally doable.  (Okay I'll admit that since this was my first attempt, that I do have a bit of glitter leaking out of my frame, so I've got room for improvement on this design).  So I decided to combine the shaker challenge with the Just Us Girls template challenge (Valentine's theme).  Thanks to Kristina's Two Peas gift card template (which I used here and here) I added some Smooch spitz and presto-- a fabulous gift card holder.  And while the video uses fun foam, I didn't have any, so I just die cut out extra layers of the mat stack out of the cereal box, worked perfectly.

Materials: PTI Warm Happiness Too, PTI Mat Stack 1 die, EK Success 1 3/4 th inch circle punch, PTI kraft and cream card stock, Tim Holtz Distress ink worn lipstock, PTI kraft ink, Versafine black ink, Smooch Cherry and Vanilla Ice Spritz, Glossy Accents, acetate, Art Glitter Sala Glitz silver

That is such a sweet gift card holder--perfect for a Starbucks card, of course!! I don't think I had a chance to mention that I used ALL of the fabulous coffee cup diecuts you sent me back before Christmas. I used them on a gift I made a friend for Christmas, but haven't had a chance to share on my blog yet. I hope to soon, so you can see how I put some of your fabulous diecuts to good use!!

Great shaker and especially great for your first attempt. I love that you created a coffee cup shaker for a card holding a coffee gift card.

A bit of glitter here and there isn't necessarily a bad thing. What a fun gift card holder, and I've got to say that I love the mist.

Such a wonderful idea Erin, you're very brave using glitter in your first shaker card... it's a well known escape artist :)
