Nautical Birthday Card and Gift Box

Who doesn’t love the beach? Summertime makes us think about packing up the kids, taking a picnic lunch out to the lake or seaside, and just relaxing the day away near the water. Crew member Agnes has a love for the sea, as well, and was inspired by our Nautical Paper Collection to create this masculine beach themed birthday card and gift box!

I love the sea side and I couldn’t help but get this fantastic Nautical Paper Collection. I created a men’s gift with card for my husband as a little birthday treat. I know that many times we are struggling to get the prefect projects which meets the needs of the men. They don’t like all those fluffy things- they like it simple in colours and form and I tell you this collection is fantastic for it. I hope you will enjoy what I made and you will get inspired. Hugs, Agnes

After we attached our chosen pieces of papers we can add some shades with inks and mists to create old vintage background.I also used mist to color the boat window I took two different colors of blue.
