Unlike other card / crafting encyclopedias, it is very general and does not provide very detailed, step-by-step instructions to produce cards for each technique. It does try to provide a picture for most of the topics mentioned.
So although okay to browse for general knowledge, it is not my go-to book for ideas or how to do something.
I Was Wrong! I had more time later and decided to find out what possessed me to buy the book and am so glad I did. It explains and illustrates (in full color) terms, tools and techniques that I had heard of but didn't know how to try. True, the information and pictures provided are brief for a lot of techniques, but it also shows more than one way to accomplish the look you want. It is on my work table for easy access and I am using it a lot.
I have been making greeting cards for about three years and would consider myself an advanced beginner. If you are a first-time or very new card maker, this is probably not the book to start with to learn the art. However, if you believe you will be a frequent card maker I suggest you purchase this book for immediate reference. I wish I had had this book a lot earlier to give me confidence to try new methods a lot sooner.
I highly recommend this book!
