Reviews - What do customers think about The Joy of Card Making?
the joy of card making Nov 13, 2007
I have so many card making books and magazines. This book seemed repetitive and fairly elementry. I don't see myself using more than reading it once. A person just starting out making cards might find it quite imformative.
A magazine? Jun 26, 2006
I thought this was an actual book, but it is just a thicker magazine. It's okay. Good for the pictures.
A font of great ideas for cardmaking Apr 18, 2006
I agree with the other reviewer: I loved reading this book. I pored over every page and card idea. You get one sample recipe or template where the how-to's are explained and then several riffs on the recipe, all very different and done by different designers. It was easy enough to figure out how these other cards were made. I would describe the card elements used as being mostly those in a scrapbooker's arsenal: embellishments, ribbon, and patterned paper, and the designs are all very clean and contemporary. Hallelujah! There is hardly a country or Victorian/romance design in the bunch and for that I am very grateful. I am excited to get going on making some of these.
Must have for all paper crafters Dec 21, 2005
This is the best and easiest book to give inspiration. The ideas are quick and each comes with a sketch and multiple examples of how to adapt the sketch. It is a book I pull out again and again!
