Red Ferrari F50

Good morning to all my friends and  followers I hope everyone is OK and  you all enjoyed the long weekend despite the weather. Today I'm sharing a 70th birthday card I made recently  for a commission from a friend . Its a man card and the person who's birthday it is is mad on classic cars
I dug out a set of old Classic Car stamps by John Byars for Docrafts, I 've used the mini out of this set a lot and  decided this time to use the Ferrari F50 stamp and  I used the Ferrari colours for the thene of my card

Love the card Carole. Great coloring. Cars are what most guys like when it comes to cards. Most of us like the classic "too expensive" cars. Mine has always been the Shelby Cobra. Sigh! Oh well, it is nice to dream.

Now that5's what I call a real card Carole, mine is red but only an MX5, a Ferrari is but a dream! A super card and matching box and sure it was well received.

You're just so good at making cards. I can never remember where the different things are from. Since my little sister died, I have not had the pleasure of making cards. Before we made cards 2 times a week. But with time I might like to make a card again Love and hugs from Denmark and Leila

Fantastic man card Carole! What a fab design which looks so good in the Ferrari colours. Love the 'wrought iron' hinges and 'metal' cogs and the Ferrari badge which I thought was real until I read your card recipe. Wonderful matching box too. This card will have gone down a treat with the car mad guy. Debra x
