No store-bought greeting card expresses your feelings, or flatters the one who receives it, like one you’ve made yourself. These 30 exquisite, professional-looking cards use texture, color, and layering to achieve fabulous looks with such simple materials as crinkled paper, scraps of ribbon, sequins, or flowers. The occasions and sentiments include Birthday Greetings, Thinking of You, Easter, Pet Bereavement, Mother’s Day, Valentine’s Day, Wedding, New Baby, Good Luck, New Home, Anniversary, and Christmas. And the projects offer a multitude of styles and techniques from embossing and stamping paper to hand-tinting photographs, creating cut-outs, and gluing on acetate pockets. Crafters who try these designs will find the results so charming they may never buy another card again.

From Booklist:

Hoorah for the printed word! In these e-days, it's comforting and personal to receive (or send) a card, a note, or some kind of message that's not delivered electronically. It's even better when the card in question is well made by hand, with thoughtful touches. Artist-entrepreneur Hancocks fills every need, every occasion, by concentrating on the essentials and refusing to overdesign her 30 greetings cards. She provides step-by-step full-color photographs and an array of techniques, from making your own stamps to incorporating natural materials, that will mesmerize—and inspire crafters. Tips, like "be free with glue" when sequinning or glittering, are intended to perfect the result. Professional-looking designs, whether a touching pet bereavement to an elegant wedding-day congratulations, say in words and style that you care. A craft that's now grown-up—and in vogue. Jacobs, Barbara
