PTI Make it Monday Challenge

Betsy Veldman has a fun Papertrey Ink Make it Monday Challenge over at Nichole's blog this week:  inlaid die-cuts.  I love the look, so I had to give it a try.

To get started, I cut strips of rustic cream and dark chocolate cardstock, along with a strip of patterned paper from Simple Stories Harvest Lane collection.  I adhered them together on the back side with some washi tape and then used the Wonderful Words:  Birthday die to cut out my word.  I took out the "birthday" cut and adhered the resulting frame to a piece of rustic cream cardstock.  Then I cut "birthday" again using simply chartreuse cardstock and nestled it into the frame.  The "happy" stamp is from Wreath for All Seasons.

I pulled out my old Banner Builder stamps and dies to add a fun banner, using another pattern from Harvest Lane.

Products used on this card:


  1. I like the simple design of this card and the inlay technique looks very cool. I like the banner also. Super job!
