These are the words for our April Words 2 Scrap By challenge, which inspired the card below. They seem pretty appropriate for a month that celebrates Earth Day and Arbor Day. :)
- It may not show up well in the photo, the bottom dark gray strip is pleated. Combined with the vertical stripes added to the gold paper, I like the overall effect achieved.
- The twine was added for two reasons: 1) to help keep the pleats in place, 2) to add additional texture, and 3) to bring the "golden" color to the bottom of the card.
- The word strips were inspired by Tim's chit chat stickers. But, I couldn't find "note" in my chit chat stickers. So, I printed these myself on the gold paper. (And, I only had one small piece of paper to use... and was thrilled when it actually turned out okay!)
- At first, I didn't have any paper behind on my chit-chat-inspired words. But, I didn't feel they had a strong enough presence. So, I adhered them to black cardstock. Then they had too strong of a presence. Finally, I added the dark gray cardstock and, as Goldilocks would say, they felt just right. :)
