My daughter was very pleased with it and has already produced cards from ideas gained from the book.
Overall an excellent product
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.
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.
