This book covers 9 techniques: spinners, sliders, wipers, peekaboo, pop-ups, hinge, swing , neverending, waterfall. Some of the themes for the cards include birthdays, hello, christmas, thank-you, halloween, etc. In terms of style, I think the Neverending and Waterfall are the better designed cards.

This book is not for beginning users and geared more towards intermediate/advanced users. I found that it did not fully show the techniques, so It was not obvious how the mechanism of the card would work. It also does not provide fully illustrated step-by-step guide, which makes it difficult to follow at times. The instruction are written as un-numbered paragraphs(decreases readability), which make reference to the few photos accompanying the instructions.

I am an avid card maker, scrapbooker and general paper crafter. This book has some really cute ideas for interactive cards and the directions are pretty easy to follow with lots of steps, diagrams and pictures. I made some Christmas cards for a craft show and they were a great hit...sold them all!

I have been making cards for nearly 11 years now and find these to be really fun to make and send.
For the average card maker, they may be a bit harder to figure out at first. If you too have a bit of experience in the card making area, I would say that this book would be a nice addition to your colletion. Now if you are a bit less experienced I still beleive you could figure it out just how to make these cards, it just might take a little bit more patients. It is worth the time to read and follow the instructions carefully while cross-checking with the photos. The photos really help a lot when trying to figure out exactly what they are saying you should do. So don't hesitate to refer to them when you need to.

Good Luck, Have Fun & Enjoy the praise you get from all you send them too!!

I have been making animated cards for about five years. I enjoy making pop-up 3D cards, origami, kirigami, anything that is different and could double as a small gift. This book has a variety of impressive ideas that can be used for any season or occasion.
Note: The first design I made took about an hour per card. The second design I made was more complicated and took about 3 hours. I used just regular card stock paper and scrapbooking ideas to decorate the cards.
The measuring, cutting, and folding was sometimes a little bit frustrating but these cards turn out a masterpiece!

A friend of mine ordered this book and when I saw it I had to have it also. I even ordered 3 (2 for friends). I love the cards in the book and the instructions are good. I have made 4 of the cards already and I have only had the book for a week. The only problem is finding the paper they use to make the cards. I looked in all the stores available to me and could not find any of the papers so I had to improvise. Turned out OK but really like the papers in the illistrations.
