Item Description...
Outline ReviewChoosing an attractive greeting card from the many available in the stores is not difficult, but how much more personal and meaningful to make your own, tailored to the recipient and the event. Instant Gratification Cards by noted craft designer Carol Endler Sterbenz presents 38 easy, stylish projects, organized by occasion, including birthdays, travel, holiday, and general. Most are very simple cardstock creations featuring cutouts, glitter, or glued-on embellishments like charms, ribbons, or paper scraps. A few double as miniature gifts in themselves, such as the Christmas card that becomes a decorative paper collar to slip over a votive candleholder. The book's exquisite design and patina of sophistication belie the simplicity of most of these projects; in fact, a number are almost too simple and some readers may feel a bit cheated. But beginners or others looking for very quick card designs will find some craft-worthy ideas here. --Amy Handy

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Disappointed  Aug 8, 2003
I purchased this book and returned it the next day, most cards resemble exerpt 3 (look inside) I found the cards to be unimaginative and boring.
Not much substance...  May 28, 2003
I was disappointed with this book. Although it's beautifully laid out, there isn't a lot here that's new. In addition, I found the directions lacking, and was disappointed in the lack of attention paid to the supplies needed.
Great buy!!!  Nov 21, 2002
I will get good use from this book - there are alot of cards that I will be making from this book. Very happy with the purchase, money well spent.
Don't judge a book by its cover.  Sep 20, 2002
I'm a crafter and have made my own greeting cards for many years. I expected more out of this book than what I got. True, this book has a good layout and the pictures are pretty, but it's dull and it didn't light my creative fire. I'm truly disappointed that I wasted my money on this one.
Nice layout BUT...  Aug 3, 2001
No expense spared in the printing of this book. Well layed out, nice pictures taken with soft focus lense. All to make up for its lack of depth. Projects more suited for a childrens art and craft book. Not for the experienced stamper or card maker. Beginers would grow out of this book very quickly. Here is an example of why. One of the projects is to cut out the shape of a butterfly (and I mean basic shape)and then to stick onto it about nine shiny plastic gems. This project takes up two pages. You would be better off spending a few more dollars and buying Handcrafted Cards from Elegant to Whimsical by Paige Gilchrist.
