Handmade greetings cards are a joy to give and to receive, but they can be expensive to buy in stores. The Bumper Book of Greetings Cards reveals how to handcraft a wealth of stylish, original designs quickly, easily and at a fraction of the retail cost.
Drawing on a range of techniques - including ever-popular stickers, rubber stamping and stencilling - the cards are made with an array of printed, coloured papers and novel craft materials. There is something for virtually every occasion.
The book opens with a look at materials and equipment required for cardmaking and provides a grounding in basic techniques. More than 80 projects follow, accompanied by step-by-step photographs and handy at-a-glance features, which explain how long the cards take to make and how they can be matched with gift-wrap.
Bursting with ideas for beginners and expert crafters alike, the bumper Book of Greetings Cards is the only cardmaking reference book you willl ever need.
