Editorís note from Jennifer Schaerer:
One-stop Inspiration - Whether you're new to card making or a seasoned hobbyist, I think you'll agree that a handmade card is something unique and personal that you give of yourself. Itís a wonderful way to let a friend, sister, neighbour, teacher, child, coach, or co-worker know that they are in your thoughts. No holiday or special occasion necessary.
With that in mind, we've gathered together the largest collection of card-making inspiration ever in this new book thanks to Wendy Sue Anderson, a talented designer and perennial favourite in the paper crafting community. When she suggested the card a day concept, we realized that in addition to holidays and special occasions, there is a special day set aside to recognize just about anything you can imagine We asked her to create a special set of cards (featured on the opening page of each month) and along with the designs from dozens of other designers, knew we had come up with a timeless and useful way to help you create a paper crafting connection.
This one-stop source for inspiration includes special sections on basic tools, colour combinations, and even sketches you can use to build cards with whatever you have on hand. Complete instructions and supply lists for each card are right there for reference, and the designs that can be made in five steps or less are marked with a special symbol. We've also listed the cards by occasion in the back of the book for easy reference.
So here's to you on National Ice Cream Day! And Happy Talk Like a Pirate Day! Best wishes on National Grandparents Day! Celebrate the connection and creativity that is the heart of card making, and get inspired to make a card a day.
