I'M BACK with a Simply Enchanted Card

I'm back in business!  It's hard to believe it's been almost 5 months since I last blogged.  Now that I've finished the bulk of my cancer treatment, I'm hoping to post more regularly. 

Last Saturday I held my first stampin' class in 9 months!  Here's one of the projects we did--it's a simple card idea that will help showcase your collection of gorgeous Designer Series Papers!
This particular card features the Everyday Enchantment Designer Series Paper (126154) that you can only earn for FREE during Sale-A-Bration!  If you're not familiar with what Sale-A-Bration is, it's the best time of year to stock up on papercrafting supplies because with every $50 you spend (before s/h & tax) you get to choose an item in the Sale-A-Bration brochure for FREE!  Click HERE to view the brochure.

Can you guess how I rounded the bottoms of the strips of DSP?  Here's a clue, I used the 1 1/4" circle punch (119861). 

Still not sure? 

Well, I can't take credit for this technique.  In fact, even after I read the directions on how to do it, I still messed it up.  So, I figured a picture would be a better way for me to show exactly how it's done.
Cool, huh!

Curly Cute stamp set (117014 wood/120510 clear)
