Publisher Description

Despite the digital world we live in, the sending and giving of greetings cards is more prolific than ever. Studies show that people have a far greater emotional response to receiving handwritten cards than they do to emails, texts and online messages. And how better to show your appreciation than with a beautiful handmade design? Creating your own cards is easy, affordable and incredibly rewarding.

In this practical and insightful book you’ll discover all the inspiration and advice you need to get started, as well as ten visually exciting and easy-to-follow projects from professional card designers. Each project introduces a different style and technique, from silkscreen printing and textile foiling to letterpress and stitched motifs. Roll up your sleeves and dive straight in: much of what you need is inexpensive and easily accessible, while clear step-by-step instructions guide you effortlessly through every stage.

Each artist offers a colourful behind-the-scenes glimpse into their studio and practice, with insights into how they gather inspiration, plus tips and tricks to help you achieve a professional finish. Accompanied by fascinating nuggets of greeting-card history and a wealth of beautiful photography, there’s also insider information on how to make larger quantities for sale and how to license designs commercially, for anyone keen to take card-making to the next level.
