    The author is Creative Director at Ellison (R) Craft and Design, so all the cards featured use Ellison's die-cuts (machine-cut motifs and card blanks). However, templates are provided for all the motifs - vital for UK crafters, as die-cut machines are not widely available here at the time of this review. The book concentrates on more complex card construction - pop-up, accordion, dangle etc - but templates are given for all these, as well. Instructions are comprehensive and it would be simple to change the colours or motifs used to suit the occasion.Card projects almost exclusively use only card and paper: embellishments are limited to punched motifs, stickers and ribbon or thread. Rubber stamping is confined to greetings alone and fancy-edge scissors - although mentioned in the Materials and Tools section - are not used. The use of paints and other colouring tools is not included, neither are beads, wire and natural or man-made embellishments. It isn't, therefore, a book to buy as a definitive guide to card-making techniques but would be a welcome addition to an existing collection of books on making your own greetings cards.

    This book has a good variety ideas for card-making for most occasions. However, the designs are extremely time-consuming, and fiddly, involving alot of cutting out (I actually had scissor-blisters on my fingers from making one of them). I got the impression that the author used precut shapes, which are unavailable to most of us, so that you have to trace and cut out the templates at the back of the book. Also some of the ideas are Americanised - for thanksgiving, halloween, etc - and so have to be adapted for english occasions. Not a book for the complete beginner but gave some good ideas.
