A wonderful ebook from C&T Publishing!
I LOVE making/sending/receiving/buying/reading cards! Not dissing store-bought cards (which are convienient and sometimes say just what you don't have the words for!) but nothing says more than a lovingly handcrafted card.
Card Art: Create Treasured Greetings from Fabric & Paper by Susan S. Terry has design ideas to create 51 handmade cards as well as a dozen handmade gift tags. These cards combine paper and fabric to make one-of- a- kind cards made by you! Don't worry if you are not very creative, the instructions are easy to follow and the book includes templates/patterns for each of the cards made in the book. Each completed card is also shown in full color photographs and each card also fits into standard sized envelopes for easy mailing. These cards can be easily costumized to fit your mood, style and scraps of papers and fabrics that you have lying around! This is a great gift for quilters, scrapbookers and anyone who wants to create beautiful homemade cards. The cards in this book offer many ideas for seasonal and holiday cards as well as some "any-occasion" ones. This book also includes tips for quotes and an introduction into basic cardmaking/supplies and techinques used.
The ebook is available at C&T Publishing for $12.99 and immediate download or you can choose to purchase the actual book for $24.99.
