Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Greeting card prices keep going up, but with a little imagination the clever crafter can make customized cards. The cards in these books go beyond simple greetings, however, and are small works of art. Twenty-two designers contributed projects to Gilchrist's book using collage, fabric, printing, and photocopies decorated and embellished to make one-of-a-kind creations. McGraw, who is well known as a rubber-stamp artist (Making Greeting Cards with Rubber Stamps), has projects that are even more artistic. Rubber-stamped impressions are just the point of departure for her colored cards, which are embellished with natural objects, beads, and photos. No one receiving any of these cards would throw them away. Both books are recommended for public libraries. Copyright 2000 Cahners Business Information.\

The Introduction is a must-read when you pick up this book. It draws the reader into the book with an engaging, friendly tone which continues conversationally all the way to the end, including the Acknowledgments. Though nostalgic/Victorian themed, there are modern designs as well. The only caution is that it is not wise to trifle with the dark side of the spirit world, even if some publishers designate a day for doing so on some calendars.
