Newton's Nook Designs' July Release ~ Final Day


Welcome back for the third and final day of Newton's Nook Designs' July Release!  Jen created a cool nautical set, complete with Purr-fect DIES, allow me to introduce 'Message in a Bottle' (Tell me I am not the only one with that song by The Police playing over and over in my head now please?) : 



And you just KNOW those bottle shaped dies can be used for hundreds of different images too as well, right?  Fill 'em up with anything!  I found this cool map patterned paper which inspired me to make a masculine card using the ship & scroll images:

Nautical Masculine card by Crafty Math Chick | Message in a Bottle by Newton's Nook Designs

At first it felt weird not coloring the objects in, but upon reconsideration, I like the simplicity of this card (as will most of the men in my life who could be the recipients!)  What do you think?
