Best Card Making Books

These are the best card making books in the market , at least for me personally. I'm one bookworm and have especially a love for collecting crafts books not just on card making but also on bookbinding, journal making, scrapbooking and any other kind of paper crafts.

So don't be surprised if you found one of these crafts & hobbies books on this page.

Well, I have two cabinets in my living room as well as boxes full of crafts books in the store room.  And here are just a few that I feel are the best card making books for sourcing cardmaking ideas and learning how to make greeting cards at home and/or with children.

These are all about card making, or are books related to card-making; for example color study as well as wordings for cards.

Best Card Making Books for Reference & Inspirations

card making book/Stamp with Style

"Stamp with Style : more than 50 creative cards & projects" 
By Kathryn Perkins 

I should say that this is my very first card making book. It was given to me by my sister-in-law together with a border rubber stamp which she bought while holidaying in Australia. The book was arranged in months from January to December. Great card ideas for each month of the year. 

card making book/Handmade Cards

"Handmade cards : simple designs for beautiful cards" 
By Anne Akers Johnson 

A book by Klutz written for young girls so the creations in this book are mostly girly stuffs.  In fact I used the template to create the flower Birthday Card which you can view by clicking here.

Although it's meant for young girls, I find that the templates and tools included are very useful. 

card making book/Greeting Cards for the first time

"GREETING CARDS for the first time" 
By Vanessa-Ann 

Though written for beginners, but just looking at the book cover is enough to make me reaching out for my card making supplies. Lots of questions beginning with "How do I design a card, using ...". Also include some card sayings. Beautiful photographs and step by step instructions. Great book!

Because of time constrain, I'm only able to add these few good card making books. But I will definitely add more in the days to come when I have settled down and sorted out my craft supplies and resources.

I will try to keep you posted at my Facebook page as well as e-newsletter. So do sign up for either or both.

Meanwhile, keep creating and have fun!
