I was inspired today to make cards when my Christmas Cardinals set arrived in the mail on Friday. I've been in a bit of a funk since making 60 ATC cards for Valentine's Day. I didn't even get them photographed before giving them all away and I'm so fed up with them, I haven't even wanted to make up some samples.
I had actually pre-coloured several cardinals in the set when I decided to make this background. It's made from 1/2 inch white strips of paper which I've sponged with Distress Inks. After I had it completed, I decided that I didn't want to cover it all up with an image. I'd found this medallion in my stash and coloured the edges with a gold Sharpie pen. The sentiment is also from the MFP's Christmas Cardinal set.
I still have a scary amount of white scraps that even my Valentine's did not put a dent into. I'm thinking I may try this card again in soft pastels for a baby card.
