I really like the card and tag and all those dimensional layers I am really loving. However I think the directions are going way overboard. It's not that hard to figure out and no one makes the same size projects. Simple general instructions will do. I love your punches and I know that I can count on the McGill name when it comes to my scrappy tools. Just tone the instructions down.
