These are 60 of the most beautiful cards a crafter will ever see, with unique techniques that no other card-making guide uses. Every project showcases excellent craftsmanship, and features great color how-to photographs, diagrams, and patterns. Choose from the classic Dutch and other European styles of folding and stitching to create something special for any occasion. Embroider a geometric star in metallic threads, and then add seed beads for an elegant, crisp design. Layer bright squares, construct a Chinese Pagoda design out of many small bits and scraps, use bold, thick threads to make a wonderfully realistic three-dimensional butterfly, or quilt a small heart-shaped card for Valentine’s Day. Each card is so exquisite that it’s a gift in itself.
