Nice Ideas, But... May 3, 2005
I was very excited to recieve this book because I am a big fan of punched art and I thought I could use that to make a transition into making my own handmade cards. The book that came has very nicely illustrated and clear instructions, and the ideas are good (probably a little mundane for a seasoned card maker, but perfect for someone starting out, like me) but a number of the materials that the book calls for are very difficult to find. A number of the projects call for very specific "card blanks" (such as pearlized blackcurrent) and I could not find cards like that at my local store. I looked online, and sure enough these cards are only really widely available in England (where the book is written). Considering another reason I bought this book was the price, I was extremely unwilling to shell out the extra money in order to pay for shipping from the UK. So, I guess I don't really know WHO this book is for. I think that seasoned cardmakers would find this book a little mundane, and as a beginner, either I have to special order certain materials or try to figure out how to make the designs work with what I can get locally (such as cutting and folding pearlized 8 1/2" x 11 cardstock), which is frustrating.
