Seaside Shore with a Z-fold

Today I decided it was time to pick up a stamp set that I hadn't used before - you know one of those sets you see in the catalogue that you just have to get, and you just haven't got to use it yet! I recently re-organised my crafting area (amazing what you find when you do this); my electric cutter is now in a much more usable space, so I dusted it off and and had a play with that too - don't fret, you can achieve a very similar result by fussy cutting, I just didn't feel like fussy cutting today.

Aren't these little fish just adorable, I can't decide between the black and white or the Tempting Turquoise and Daffodil Delight as my favourite, the both look so lovely. How good does the Softly Falling Textured Impressions Embossing Folder work for creating little bubbles rising from the ocean floor, and that curvy edge on the top of the card is courtesy of the Swirly Scribbles Thinlits Dies

I've used sponging on the seaweed, rope and anchor. The middle panel just has a corner embossed so that you have a write your personal message to the lucky recipient.Whilst I haven't used all the images in the set, I have at least had a play and given myself some food for thought for what I can create in the future with the adorable ocean themed set.
