There are many craft books available for Card Makers from David & Charles publishers and Search Press. Listed here some of my favourite ones.
Sue Nicholson started making greetings cards to raise money for charity, and progressed to leading workshops and demonstrations for a variety of craft outlets, including Hobbycraft. She is now a regular contributor of rubber stamping and paper crafting projects to Popular Crafts magazine. Sue lives in Altrincham, Cheshire, UK. It was from attending one of Sue's classes that I started into the wonderfully creative world of card making. Her craft books will inspire you too.
