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.
