Surprise your friends and family with clever, handmade cards culled from Susan Attenborough's wonderfully inventive The Card Book. With 30 designs spread over five categories (Christmas, festivals, good luck, romance, and birthdays), there's plenty to choose from. Crafters will enjoy the simple paper engineering behind the pop-ups, slot-ins, bauble pendants, accordion-type, and other nifty styles. To accommodate so many projects in a fairly slim volume, each idea is showcased on a two-page spread, which then refers readers to the relevant templates and basic techniques pages at the end of the book. Directions are reasonably good, but since each method encompasses two or more project designs, some degree of interpolation is necessary. Yet this format, which may frustrate beginners, is likely to spur more experienced card makers to new heights of invention. --Amy HandyAbout the Author:
