Use these nautical free printables to create beautiful windswept seascapes, rolling waves and shell-speckled shores on your papercraft projects. Download papers, cut-outs and sentiments, designed by Esther Curtis, and use them straightaway on your cards.


The soft colours in these printables, from issue 165 of Papercraft inspirations, work well for different schemes and occasions. You can create distinct cards with lots of inking and distressing details, which add a wonderful weatherworn look, befitting of the theme. The subtle wood-effect and watercolour-effect papers create perfect neutral backgrounds, too.

With a huge array of sea creatures, shells, boats and compasses that can be added to your makes, you really need very little else from your crafty stash to create some great cards and scrapbook pages with plenty of aquatic appeal for birthdays, Father’s Day and more.
