Multi-crafter Fransie Snyman is a science teacher who escapes to her crafts whenever her busy schedule allows. Although jewellery-making is her first love, she loves paper and has always made her own greeting cards. Dabbling in many other crafts, including pewter, scrapbooking, glass painting, encaustic art and, most recently, stained glass, she belongs to several craft groups and is a popular teacher and demonstrator at expos and other events. She has written many books on various crafts, several of which have appeared in international editions. This is her second book on card making.
