I really love this bird cage set, Aviary, but haven't used it much so I wanted to try to make a couple holiday cards with it. I posted one a couple of days ago here, and this is the second one I made. This card uses the bird and cage from the Aviary set along with the holly from the Happy Hour Set. Then I added on some ribbon (this is retired, I think its from Sale-a-Bration last year). The shape is cut out using the Framelits die (window frames). I also used the early espresso Core'dinations cardstock and the woodgrain embossing folder to create the cool wood texture. This cardstock is cool because the core of it is a lighter color so when you emboss or sand it, you can see the color through it! The paper is a piece of retired holiday paper from my stash!
