DIY: DIY Easy Shaker Cards

Easy Shaker Cards

Damask Love started as a card-making blog. It was pretty paper stationery every single day. Even though, the blog has grown and evolved, I still have my love for cards and I still love making them. Especially when they involve confetti. Lucky for you, today’s easy shaker cards do!

Since it’s National Letter Writing Month, I’m taking a sec to get back to making some cards – and showing you how easy it can be. Instead of shelling out ten bucks for a specialty piece of stationery, why not just craft up your own. I got the inspiration for this easy shaker cards technique from this video tutorial by my crafty friend, Julie Ebersole.

Ok…listen carefully – here’s what you need:

  • an A2 card made with patterned paper. HERE’S an oldie but goodie  lesson on how I make my patterned paper cards.
  • one piece each of White cardstock and clear cardstock (also called Clear Craft Paper) cut to 3.75″ x 4.5″
  • foam mounting tape
  • confetti…or you can use sequins.
  • washi tape
  • scissors
  • stickers

  1. I started reading your blog when you were more of a card maker and really miss seeing your card creations. I hope you’ll share more cards on the blog, you have so much talent.

  2. Hi:)

    Thanks so much for posting this! I made one for a one year old bday girl this weekend and everyone loved it! I added a couple things to personalize it, but kept your main outline. Again, thank you-you’re such an inspirational and I check your blog regualar (became a fan a couple months ago). Keep up the wonderful work and thanks for taking the time to make these detailed tutorials:)
