Classic Car

This is a card I was asked to make for my friend it was for a 65th birthday and you guessed the person is mad on Classic Cars. I managed to find a set of classic car stamps and choose the Austin Mini Cooper from the sixties.
 

 
I researched the history of the Austin Mini Cooper and the Cooper S and put together a short history that I have put on the insert of the card I also stamped the small version of the stamp inside. The facing page has a normal birthday greeting. As it was a special card I also made a matching box.

I hope you enjoy looking at this card I do not do many masculine cards so quite enjoyed doing something with no girlies, ribbon or flowers. Hope you enjoy the rest of the week, I'm busy with Appeals again tomorrow . I'm not sure I'll get a lot more crafting in this week but you never know what time I can make. I will be at my craft group for a short time on Thursday and its Christmas Decoupage so this will be my first Christmas Card !!
