What makes these cards so jazzy? The techniques that adorn them--stenciling, stamping, embossing, punching, and collage--as well as a wealth of eye-catching embellishments, including festive beads, jewels, ribbons, and tassels. Plus, they're the creations of a team of talented artists who have really outdone themselves. Some of the designs are easy to make, others more complicated, but there's something for every occasion and a wide array of styles and sizes to choose from. Give a Love Collage to a sweetheart; a Special Delivery greeting with a stork and small baby motifs; and cards for birthdays, anniversaries, Mother's and Father's Days, and every holiday.

Although the term jazzy in the title may be a little overzealous, the more than 60 greeting-card projects collected here are attractive, fun, and easy enough to finish in a single sitting. Baskett, who brought us Greeting Cards Galore (2005), contributes useful introductory discussion on tools and materials in the projects, but the designs, from sophisticated to delightfully silly, are the work of others--five or six contributors, each of whom is given credit for her creativity. Baskett has included holiday (mostly Christmas), thank-you, get-well, and sympathy cards, as well as designs for special circumstances such as graduation, a new baby, and bon voyage. The instructions aren't illustrated, though a few scribbled patterns are supplied for some of the more complicated cards, and a large picture of each finished project can be used as a guide. The finished products will be fun to make, but even more fun to give. Stephanie Zvirin
