Description - The Complete Photo Guide to Cardmaking by Judi Watanabe
Handmade cards are gifts, creative expressions, keepsakes, and relationship builders. Beneath the cardstock and embellishments is deep emotion from the card maker--encouragement, celebration, commemoration, and love. Unlike many store-bought cards that are thrown away, handmade cards are cherished and displayed. They spark connections, express feelings, evoke laughter, and warm the hearts of friends, relatives, and coworkers. There's joy in the process of creating, as well as in giving and receiving handmade cards.
The Complete Photo Guide to Cardmaking is the ultimate resource on card making. All paper-crafting techniques that can be employed for card making are thoroughly covered, including a comprehensive description of paper types available, folding options and techniques, coloring and image transfer methods, and adding embellishments.

Author Biography - Judi Watanabe
Judi Watanabe's love for cardmaking started as soon as she was tall enough to reach the mailbox. Learning to carve erasers led to her next passion, rubber stamping. Together with her husband, Rob, she grew JudiKins Rubber Stamps from a small business in their garage in 1989 to one of the most innovative craft product manufacturers in the industry today. Judi now travels the world teaching and demonstrating rubber stamping techniques with projects that strive to reflect her philosophy of 'simple elegance.'
