Camper camping

Years ago we had a Class C camper.  One year I made reservations for a number of state parks in Michigan and we went every weekend to a different campground.  It was great while it lasted but now camping involves the cottage at the lake, and while the scenery is the same all the time, it's a wonderful place to be.

My card reminded me of those camper days.  In fact, ours looked very similar to this one.


I made this shaped card from Going Places.  I cut the blackout/shadow from light blue so showing through the windows it would kind of look like glass.  I used glossy accents on them to further the glassy look.  I inked the camper with Weathered Wood Distress Ink and the tires with Black Soot.  The "hubcaps" cut out so I took the circles and embossed them with silver embossing powder.  It doesn't show well in the picture. 

I am entering this in the Fantabulous Cricut challenge - S'more Anyone?, anything camping
and Cricut Cutter Room's Summer Fun.
