Vintage Car

The challenge over on My Craft Creations at the moment is Transport, and I just happen to have been asked to make this Arty Farty Car for a friend whose Father is just about to turn 70. I've made this car before but in white, as a wedding car with red roses, horseshoes and just married signs. But that was not the right colour for this one, however I did have a nice sheet of A3 card in this green, which is like the old Racing Green colour of the old MG's, so this is what I've used along with some red. The main body of the card is cut out of the A3 sheet and the hood and seat is cut out of the red. I've added some peel offs to the side of the card to make it look like metal trim, the steering wheel, dash board and wheels are all part of the template pack. I also added Happy Birthday, Dad and 70 using peel offs.

In the template pack there is also one for the box to display the car, and for this I used this lime coloured card. Again I needed A3 card, so the choice came down to what I had that would go with the car.

Thanks for taking the time to look, and your kind comments which are always appreciated.

This is a brilliant car and box - quite fiddly to make I imagine but well worth the effort.
