Marjoleine’s 3D Greetings Cards
By Marjoleine Zweed

       Marjoleine’s sheets of themed designs, with their neat square or rectangular shapes, have been a favorite with crafters for some time now and here is a whole book on how to use them to great advantage. In combination with her new range of background sheets to match the pictures, this shows you how to make them into a variety of pleasing cards with a 3D paper tole element. Included are some diagrams on how to cut selected sheets, and lots of ideas for cards with simple instructions.

      The papers used are mainly floral, but there are also a few using the beach sheet, and some new baby cards using the two teddy bear ones. No Christmas cards are featured but maybe that is for a future book? Personally I think that this is a lovely book that even a total beginner would be able to use competently to come up with a professional-looking card in not very much time.

       If you cannot find Marjoleine’s cutting and pattern sheets locally try for a list of suppliers, or opt for my suggestions:
