Greeting Cards in an Afternoonby Cindy Gorder
When you want to send a greeting to someone special, don't settle for buying a mass-produced card. Instead, why not make a card that's so unique, it's a gift in itself! With a creative graphic artist and teacher as your guide, you'll easily and quickly turn ordinary materials into imaginative works of art. Instructions for dozens of styles cover all occasions, including birthdays, anniversaries, weddings, and births. Select from many different kinds of papers, which you simply cut, tear, or fold into a message from your heart. A variety of techniques let you create just the right tone, as you select from beading, collage, foiling, painting, paper pricking, photo images, silk painting, stamping, stenciling, embossing, lettering, and even more. 8 1/2 X 10. 112 Color Pages

Pages that mark the chapters carry a sense of the nostalgic Victorian image that is comfy and inviting, even though many of the designs are uniquely contemporary. The "Creative Techniques" and "Basic Construction" chapters are detailed and most helpful. It's a fun book to have.
