Simply a great day

I was very happy to find the Simply Sent Great Day kit I received at Convention last year in a recent Stamp room tidy up. I haven't had much time to create lately & thought it would be great to have some quick ready to send cards. The kit includes all you need to make 8 complete cards. You can follow the suggested layout or give them your own twist. Add a sentiment of your choice & you're done. Here's what I came up with.
I started simply by mostly following the kit sample & then added my own simple twists & scraps. Number 1 has a sentiment (from Petite Pairs) on a scrap of pretty in pink card & some pearl bling, which I used on all the cards.They just add so much with so little effort.
 Card 2 is a portrait version with punched flower bouquet flower & a fave sentiment from the Thank You Kindly set....and yes, its the same gorgeous font as my favourite Fabulous Phrases set.
Cards 3 and 4 have a punched scallop edge & I've used some pretty in pink, bashful blue & so saffron Patterns DSP scraps (all from the Subtles pack). The blue version is one of my favourites.
For cards 4 & 5, I added a bit of extra colour.
For the final card, I cut a tag using Two Tags die & mounted it on a so saffron base. This one was my favourite, so I made another one with the last card base.
I'm generally a pretty slow cardmaker, so I felt so productive making 8 cute cards in one go. I think I'll be carefully looking for some similar new options in our brand new catalogues coming in September. Stay tuned!

So, do you want to know more about the Great Day kit?
It includes everything you need to make 8 cute cards - pre printed bases, die cut accents, ribbon, buttons & envelopes & instructions. Perfect for a gift too. Most importantly, it's retiring this month & has been discounted by 25% to a fantastic $16.95. That's just over $2 per card!  See the kit in the online catalogue.
Thanks for visiting & an extra thanks if you take the time to leave a friendly comment. If you'd like to order a kit or would like more info about my cards, just drop me a line or leave me a comment.
Back soon with a fun kids card.
Inky wishes, Di

Wow! For someone who hasn't had much time, you sure did an awesome job to get so many cards made. You're making me feel lazy and a tad jealous. Ha ha... Fabulous, as always! :)

Di you have inspired me to use that kit now because I didn't really like it before, but I like what you have done with it. ♥

Ha - mine is still languishing in a cupboard somewhere too Di! This is great inspiration to get it out and have a play. Your tag version is my favourite too :)
