Introducing Make It Market Mini Kit: Wee Folk

Today is the third of Papertrey Ink's April Release group posts, and we're introducing another of Betsy's fabulous Make It Market Mini Kits. This one is called Wee Folk, and is just as sweet as can be!

Before I get to my projects, just a quick reminder that all of the April release products will be available in the Papertrey Ink store tomorrow, April 15, at 10 pm EST.

Make It Market Mini Kit: Wee Folk comes with a folk art-style stamp set, companion dies, beautiful papers (boy papers and girl papers), and some darling embellishments. 

My first card is super simple and quick to assemble. The papers are so gorgeous and stand alone beautifully with little embellishing. I trimmed down the main panel, adhered it to a slightly larger panel of polka dot Sheer Basics vellum, then mounted it to another of the Wee Folk patterns. I wrapped some twine on the diagonal, package-style, and tied off with a wood button from the kit, before mounting to a white card base.

Just like the Clipsters Make It Market mini kit from the March release, this kit has a printed sheet specifically for die-cutting. Just center the die inside the printed outline and your image will cut perfectly. I die-cut a deer and popped it up as a second layer over the first deer. I also added a few other pre-printed die-cuts to the garland along the bottom. Super quick and easy!

This next card is a little more involved. Flagrant layering going on here, folks ;) I started with a new Scene It: Doily Tag Base diecut in Aqua Mist. On top of that is a Scene It: Basic Backer layer in white. And on top of that is a Summer Sunrise sun layer and two white clouds, done with the Scene It: Skycapes dies. The green hill was cut with a Scene It: Everyday die.

The deer is from the pre-printed die-cut sheet in the Wee Folk kit. The tulips, garland, flowers, and butterfly were all stamped and diecut. The sentiment is stamped in two parts - "welcome" in Ocean Tides on a Double-Ended Banner diecut, and "little" one in Versamark on vellum, then heat embossed in white.

I wove a strip of Chicken Scratch Gingham paper in aqua mist through the slits in the Scene It: Doily Tag Base, and then layered the whole shebang onto the lovely heart pattern from the Wee Folk kit.

Beautiful cards! I especially love the second one, with the circular scene you created! I think you pushed me over the edge on needing the doily tag base--didn't think I would, but I love how you used it! Sue N (suen)
