Simply delightfully uniform

I wouldn't be surprised if the runaway favourite Simply Sent Kit is Simple Delights. With its elaborate flourishes and rather delightful sentiments, who could resist? I know I didn't and that was way before the kits were briefly available at 20% off. So, even though the promotion is over, I thought I'd post the cards that I had made using one of them. After all, the fun really kicks in after you've made a couple of the predesigned cards and you're looking to do new things with what you've got. *cue MacGyver theme song* *gets Indiana Jones theme instead* Sorry but I can't remember the MacGyver song because it was sooooo long ago and I only recently watched Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull! Unfortunately, the latter is now well and truly lodged in my head.

Simply Sent Simple Delights made upSpeaking of predesigned cards, I'll begin with the standard "I didn't design these but rather these are the ones that have instructions in the kit" just for completeness. Each kit has enough supplies to make five of each of the cards to the left.

I reckon that this particular kit cries out for uniformity and order. Those geometric patterns look tremendous when perfectly lined up and spaced out precisely - a bit like a military tattoo. Keep the kit happy and use a Stamp-A-Ma-Jig with it at least some of the time. Am I projecting here?

Simply Sent Simple Delights another wayAnother tool which really suits this kit is a square punch. The square stamp impressions are peeking out of square windows in this card but one can imagine them just as happy being layered on square cardstock. Am I projecting again?
