    THE card making book to have

    I would rather make a card than buy one so I am always looking for ideas. Now I don¿t have to look any more. JOY OF CARD MAKING ¿ COLLECTOR¿S EDITION has it all. 200 plus pages provide ideas for weddings, gift tags, Hi, how are you cards, birthdays, graduation, invitations --- and I could go on and on but you get the idea.<BR/><BR/>A photo of each card and a materials list provides you with everything you need to recreate an exact duplicate of the one in the book. BUT wait; why not add a touch of your own? Pick a different paper or add an embellishment the authors didn¿t and you have a creation all your own.<BR/><BR/>A few of the supplies used by the authors are ribbon, cord, rickrack, paper (of course!!), buttons, ink, charms, paper flowers, wire, doll rods and wire mesh. I¿m sure you can think of other things to use.<BR/><BR/>There are special notes throughout labeled APPETIZING IDEAS, SECRET INGREDIENTS AND TIPS A LA DEE which provide suggestions for changing the look of the card. Templates are given in the back of the book and show each type (design) of card. They are not full sized but rather a layout suggestion.<BR/><BR/>Card sizes are 4 ¼ x 5 1/2, 4 x 9, 3 3/8 x 6 and 3 x 3 ½. There are also unique shaped cards such as Christmas Trees, a Shirt Pocket, Luggage Tags and even a card that looks like an envelope.<BR/><BR/>With this book and your supplies, you now have everything you need to create a one-of-a-kind, all-your-own card to send for the next time you need a card. Get a copy and start creating!
