Susan Pickering Rothamel, author of the best-selling Encyclopedia of Scrapbook Tools and Techniques (Sterling/Chapelle, 2005), now turns her A-to-Z eye to another popular papercraft: greeting cards. With its detailed definitions of terms, tools, materials, and techniques; illustrated how-to instructions; and hundreds of handmade cards from leading artists, this will become the must-have visual reference for anyone interested in the craft.
Photographs of delightful greeting cards appear on every spread, along with step-by-step pictures of key skills. Sidebars on leading card makers discuss the techniques for which they’re celebrated, from Dee Gruenig’s rubber-stamp designs to Alli Bartkowski’s quilling.

A fairly academinc A-Z of greeting cards - a multi million dollar international industry. Useful section for card makers at the back of the book with quotes and sentiments to be used in cards.
