I bought this book a few weeks ago and it's great. The designs are not over complicated and with easy to follow instructions it's a book card makers will enjoy using. There are lots of ideas for different occasions - definitely a good buy!

I bought this book as a Xmas present for my daughter, and as usual from Amazon the delivery was excellent. The book is very visual with page after page of colourful photographs and a great cover which shows much of what you get inside.
My daughter was very pleased with it and has already produced cards from ideas gained from the book.

Overall an excellent product

The book lives up to its name "Quick and Clever Handmade Cards", but I was very disappointed by the materials in the kit. The cards are of poor quality and the rest of the material bears no resemblance to the designs in the book.

This was a fun easy to read little book. Contents of the kit were not much use for making quality cards but great for kids. Therefore making this an all round book for a little price and I think for beginners it is fantastic book of ideas.Not a book for experienced crafters.
This book gives ideas for birthdays, holidays, and celebrations.It gives lots of advice at the beginning and advice on equipment, paper etc,. In the rear of the card you will find templates for several of the projects and also sayings for the inside of your card. As I said this is a beginning to end of card making for early or first book on the subject.

Format: Paperback
This attractive, wellpresented handbook for the home card-maker is full of ideas and suggestions for making and illustrating cards for special occasions from an artistic point of view.

However, what I needed was more information about basic materials needed:- types of paper and how to obtain them; permeability of photographic papers; types of cutting tools; printing methods and the economics of various methods, including postage restrictions on size and weight. In short, all those aspects of personal card-making which otherwise have to be discovered through trial and error. Names and addresses of good suppliers would have been helpful.

"Handmade Cards" does deal briefly with many of these aspects, but most of the publication was devoted to gimmicky layouts and visual effects of design. Few of the latter would have been appropriate for my needs, so although this is a good book for ideas I think it needs to be seen before making it a first choice for a novice card-maker.

I'm a new card maker so I like to look in magazines or books for ideas and for instruction. I got this one from the library and it's been so useful, I have renewed it twice and I'm going to have to buy my own copy. The cards are stylish and cover a range of techniques - all of which are clearly explained and photographed. I think I'll go back to the designs in this book for a long time to come.

Arrived well packaged and in fantastic condition for a used item. The book it's self is extremely helpful and having already borrowed a copy from the library I was desperate to buy a copy and was thrilled to get such a bargain in a used copy.
