holiday shaker cards with essentials by ellen & mft

Are you looking for some Christmas card motivation and inspiration? Hopefully I can help a teeny tiny bit with some holiday shaker cards I created using Essentials by Ellen and My Favorite Things stamps, dies, stencils and more!
I am deep in my appreciation of October...scary movies, Halloween candy, cinnamon tea & fuzzy socks...BUT I am in holiday creating mode!
I have to admit that I have a hard time making many multiples of one card, even for Christmas, so these cards were a great compromise! The base was easy to duplicate but I can make unique little shaker "polaroids". 

You can see the process in this quick video...

Super cute cards! I love the blend of mass production with the different shakers. I also love these little polaroids as mini shakers.

These are so cute! I really need to start experimenting with kraft cardstock more. My first instinct is always to go to white, but I love how your white elements stand out even more in these designs!

These are adorable! Such a great idea, too. I have a similar die and never use it. Definitely will be CASEing these soon. Thanks for the inspiration.
