Under the Sea...

Good morning Tutti friends!

Vicki here with you today.  I am so excited to share "Under the Sea"  from the  April 2018 release.  The eleven nautical themed dies in this release are now available for purchase in the Tutti Designs Store.  They are amazing and a must have for your die cut collection!

When I hear, "Under the Sea", I can't help but think of the Little Mermaid, Sebastian the crab and all of the fun characters from Disney's Little Mermaid movie.  It's one of my all time favorites and the reason the new Under the Sea die is now a favorite too! 

I decided to create a whimsical card using this new die.  One that gives a magical, fantasy feeling of life below the ocean surface...

Here's my inspiration using the new Under the Sea, and the Believe Word Set.

Wow, this Under the Sea die cut is so elegant cut from gold metallic cardstock.  I wanted to show off all  the details without using a lot of embellishing.  The card base is an older embossed cardstock that I've had in my stash for years.  It's layered with water color patterned paper that has a tiny gold fleck design.  I matted this with a fine edge of white cardstock.  The minimal embellishing includes blue dew drops for water bubbles and a sparkly, gold starfish.
The sentiment, Believe, is also cut from the gold metallic and matted with the same cardstock as the base.  It fit perfectly in the frame created by the Under the Sea die.

Dew drops are always a fun embellishment to use as water droplets.

  3. I love this card, it makes me think of summer and what a great way to start off a Monday. The swirls are like waves on the ocean and the background paper with tiny gold dots reminds me of air bubbles from the crab. I had to look up all the new dies and I am in love with all of them. This is a beautiful card and again what a way to start a Monday with. Thank you.
