I should say right off the bat that only a couple of the greeting cards in this book appealed to me. I thought most of the examples went overboard with decorative techniques, and ended up looking--well, home-made, or in extreme cases, ugly. These cards are the overstuffed Victorian parlors of paper art. Picking an example at random--the Silk Beaded Heart--the required decorative elements for this greeting card are:

"5"x7: swatch of 100% silk fabric; silk dyes - purple, emerald, blue; marking pens - purple, magenta, green; upholstery braid with ½" flange, blue and white; seed beads - purple (two sizes), blue; bugle beads, mauve; decorative flower bead, mauve; small shank button, silver; rubber stamps with heart motifs."

The result looks like a centipede circling an algae-filled, heart-shaped pool. If Stephen King ever sets a novel in a honeymoon hotel in the Poconos, this card could be used as the cover illustration.

However, "Greeting Cards in an Afternoon" is still a very useful book, especially its beginning chapters, where the author discusses supplies, tools, and card-crafting techniques. I finally learned what sponge stamps are really used for, and how to make my own. The sections on beading, and stenciling were especially useful to me.

For instance, the author discusses three different stenciling techniques, using paint, ink, and colored pencils.

Sometimes though, she can wax a bit vague when the going gets tough. Her graduation day card example interested me, partly because it had a little butterfly net on it. I thought the author was going to provide instructions on how to make one, but she didn't. (There are actually miniature butterfly nets for sale on eBay, but the handles are too long).

If you are fond of lace, buttons and beads, and Victoriana, "Greeting Cards in an Afternoon" might be just the right paper craft book for you. You can decide for yourself whether you want to use all of the author's suggested decorations on the same greeting card.
