• Why make one card when you can make a whole batch?

• Paper crafters love cardmaking

• Fast, easy, innovative ideas and techniques



Crafters, stop sweating over one little greeting card at a time. By the Batch: Creative Cards, Postcards, Envelopes & More reveals innovative new ideas for creating fabulous cards (and envelopes, tags, and bookmarks) in batches, with impressive results. The wide range of techniques presented includes everything from the tried and true (rubber stamping) to the unexpected (polymer clay!), from the spontaneous (smudge-and-smear) to the whimsical (shaped cards). And author Judi Kauffman shows precisely how to put pedal to the metal and create whole batches of cards in just one sitting! Sophisticated materials and appealing design blended with speed-boosting ideas? By the Batch is just the ticket...uh, card...for anyone with lots of friends and family, and only a little time to create something special.
