Library Journal Review

Greeting card prices keep going up, but with a little imagination the clever crafter can make customized cards. The cards in these books go beyond simple greetings, however, and are small works of art. Twenty-two designers contributed projects to Gilchrist's book using collage, fabric, printing, and photocopies decorated and embellished to make one-of-a-kind creations. McGraw, who is well known as a rubber-stamp artist (Making Greeting Cards with Rubber Stamps), has projects that are even more artistic. Rubber-stamped impressions are just the point of departure for her colored cards, which are embellished with natural objects, beads, and photos. No one receiving any of these cards would throw them away. Both books are recommended for public libraries. (c) Copyright 2010. Library Journals LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc.
