Just Add Ink #376 - Just Add D

Happy Friday! Time for another challenge. At Just Add Ink this week Tina has challenged us to Just Add 'D'.

A few weeks ago I was made a 3D box card and this week I was asked to make a similar version for a 90th birthday. I love making custom cards - beats people having to buy a boring generic one! So using the Daisy Delight stamp set to make a 3D card for a dear lady was perfect for this challenge.

And as you can see I am still in my glossy cardstock phase! I used the ghosting technique for the daisies and 90. You can read how I did this here. Grab some Versamark ink, sponge brayers and ink pads and you will be up and running.

The glossy cardstock has a beautiful ummm ...... well ..... gloss to it which is just perfect for special cards like this that you want to display to mark such a fabulous occasion.

The back has a message panel and the sides fold in so that it fits into a standard C6 envelope.

Make sure you check out what the other Design Team members created and why not have a go yourself and join in our challenge.

Oh and how could I forget! My time as a guest designer at Just Add Ink has come to an end. But the really exciting news is that I have been asked to join the team as a permanent member. I am so happy and appreciative to be part of this talented, creative and just plain lovely team along with Denita, Jackie, Jo and Rachael who will also become permanent members too.
