Introducing Make It Market Mini Kit: Holiday Folk + Treetops Glisten

Hello and welcome to day 3 of the Papertrey Ink September countdown!
I'm having a hard time believing it's really that time of year!  Time to plan out those Christmas cards already.  I'm ready though.  Christmas cards are some of my faves to make.  Today I've got a simple design idea that will have you cranking out those cards in no time!
The layout is basic, it features a panel die cut either from pattern paper or card stock.  Here I've used the Sentiment Splits: Angle Vertical die to cut a panel from a sheet of the Make It Marker Mini Kit: Holiday Folk pattern paper pad.
I simply attached the panel to the card base with dimensional adhesive, stamped the sentiment along the bottom angled edge, wrapped with twine and embellished with wooden stars from the Make It Marker Mini Kit: Holiday Folk.  Once the stars were glued in place I touched them up with my Wink of Stella brush pen in gold.
This card is a bit more involved, stamping wise. The layout is basically the same as above but done with the use of the Sentiment Splits: Angle Horizontal die.
The panel was die cut from white cardstock and then stamped with the tree image from the Make It Marker Mini Kit: Holiday Folk stamp set.  I used a color combo of new leaf, ocean tides and pinefeather.  I couldn't help but trim apart that stacked sentiment, it's such a fun look!
I've got another card duo for you, using the same basic card pattern as above.  This time using pattern paper and stamps from the Treetops Glisten collection.
This triangle tree pattern is so versatile!  You can add your own stamped "colored" trees to the black trunks on the white/kraft triangle paper!  Allowing you to personalize and coordinate to your hearts desire.
Here I've stamped the ornament dots in raspberry fizz and gold over the trunks. For a little more pop of color I wrapped the card with green embroidery floss. 
This pattern paper comes in both a horizontal and vertical orientation.
Stamp on the trunks or not, like I've done on this last card.  I just switched it up for you here.  So many options in both the pattern paper and today's basic card pattern.

Well, that concludes today's look at Make It Market Mini Kit: Holiday Folk and the Treetops Glisten collection. Just remember... all that you have seen today will be available for purchase through Papertrey Ink, beginning September 15th.  More details on these products can be found at the Papertrey Ink blog.
