Happy Wednesday, Friends! I’ve got another beachy project for you today. This time, a nautical gift set using the adorable Seaside collection from Authentique.
Every time Authentique releases their summer beach line, I think they couldn’t possible top their last one… but every time they do. Seaside is amazing. Beautiful prints, and a fantastic patriotic color scheme that is right up my alley.
I paired Seaside with some of my favorite Tim Holtz dies to make a fun underwater scene for my mini notecard and matching gift box.
I am crazy about that Movers & Shapers mini seahorse die, and it was the perfect size for my little window on this 3.5″ x 5″ notecard. I did some inlaid die cutting on the oval opening, using a mix of prints from both the 12×12 and 6×6 papers.
The Tim Holtz Holiday Greens dies make for awesome coral and kelp. I added Distress ink to them, and a super heavy coating of Distress Crackle Paint to the seahorse and starfish. Twine ties and sequin water bubbles.
