Friday Focus: Aviary Stamp Set

This week I have decided to focus on one of my favorite stamp sets, and one you have seen in my posts before: Aviary.
This is a card that I used for a challenge earlier this month.  You can see the post here.
This card was made by heat embossing the cages and sentiment.  Since water based inks do not adhere to the embossed image, you can stamp the birds after embossing and they still look like they are caged.
The bird images are also great for accents on other designs.
In this "room" the bird cage is an accent on the table (I CASE'd this card design from Kristin Moore).  I used one bird in the window and one as a piece of art for the wall.
The table was made with the negative from the decorative label punch as a table stand.
Matting the sentiment in two colors and adhering it with dimensionals gave enough height to keep the easel card from sliding down.
