tape is the latest indispensable material for card makers,
and this little book demonstrates how versatile it can be.
There are twenty card projects (plus an extra twenty ideas)
showing what you can do with a few rolls of tape, plus whatever
else you have in your stash.
Rubber stamping, punches, dry and heat embossing, die cutting,
stencils, embossing paste and more all put the tape through
its paces. The designs are all bright and modern, simple and
suitable for many occasions. You won't find festival specific
cards in here but there are many ideas that can be adapted
for the season and occasion. What the book really does is
show you how you can extend the papercrafts you already do
to involve the new material; what it is capable of, how it
looks when stamped on or embossed or die cut etc. Each project
has a full page photograph of the finished card, plus a small
inset of an alternative as well as instructions, a list of
supplies and a very handy list of tools. Many items are the
ones most cardmakers already own, and as I perused the book
my own creative juices were soon flowing and I was planning
how to incorporate the tape with my latest acquisitions. This
is a good book as it fully shows you what the tape is capable
of, how to use it and how to include it with what you already
have to hand.
