He likes skiing, camper vans, holidays.....

I was commissioned to make a card for the 60th birthday of an aquaintance’s husband, the brief was that he liked skiing, holidays, camper vans and cars - well the cars was the only one I left out. I made an easel style card so that I could add the die cut numbers without compromising the design on the front.
I found a free digi image of a camper van which I used to cut the shapes from coloured and white card then assembled all the various layers to form the completed van. I created the skiing background myself on the computer then coloured it with promarkers to add a bit of subtle colour. I'm quite happy with the result - hope he is too!
