No Stamping Required

Hello friends!
You know me, I am an avid stamper. BUT there are times that I create without using stamps...
Yup, it happens.
Today's card is a good example.
peace and joy
So I basically took full advantage of the December Card Kit from Simon Says Stamp. This kit comes with some gorgeous pattern paper and soft stickers. I decided to construct a flat faux shaker 
 card. I used the Stitched Rectangles and inserted a piece of acetate with double-sided tape and then mounted it on a piece of 4" x 5 1/4" card base. In between the acetate, I added some confetti, plastic stars and sequins. The soft stickers are easy to use and really make the design a cinch to create.

Now, for the fun of it, I am sharing my camera set-up. I think it's kind of hilarious, but it totally works! Some of you know that Dr. John made a Lego structure for my You Tube video taping. One day, while I was running on the treadmill, I thought of having pine needles hanging down...that would make a cool picture, wouldn't it? 
Upon my request, Dr. John made a few small is how it looked! LOL
I have no secrets. Hope this post makes you smile.

Lastly, I want to pass on some pertinent info. Wow...see that? Some really awesome dies are 50% off.

I love your Lego Photography contraption and the pine needles were an excellent addition. So festive, besides they smell good. Love this little shaker card as well. Clever use of those adorable stickers. I've already been Simon Cyber Monday shopping, thank you very much. Couldn't resist it, too good a deal.
