Last October we introduced Cardlets and they are back in Sweet Cardlets II! A “Cardlet” is a small character motif that comes with a sentiment that fits within a 3 x 3 area and has a matching die. It just so happens that this size is perfect for the ever-popular Slimline Cards. Join us in introducing a new slimline as well – Hemstitch Slimline – it will match Hemstitch Rectangles and all of the other Hemstitch Classics.
I am thrilled to partner with Amazing Paper Grace to bring you this little taste of inspiration!
Sweet Cardlets are just like stamps, but they are metal plates used in the Spellbinders Glimmer Hot Foil System to transfer foil to paper through a combination of heat and pressure. The Glimmer machine base is rolled through your die-cut machine to deliver that pressure. (Compatibility charts on the Spellbinders website)
The Inspiration behind Sweet Cardlets II
Since we are premiering the first Slimline Card Die for the Amazing Paper Grace line of dies, we wanted you to have plenty of sweet elements that fit onto the slimline. The small motif 3″ x 3″ footprint makes this easy. Add to that there is a matching die it makes for a cute pop of dimension on all of your cards – Slimline, A2 or A7.
Always mindful of the budget, Becca wanted to create a collection where each set is all you need to make a little card. Sweet Cardlets are small motifs with a 3″ x 3″ footprint. Sweet Cardlets also fit into the Cascade Card Base and work along with all of the Shadowbox Dies.
Dies for my creations today were supplied by Amazing Paper Grace.
My Projects for Today
Today I have two cards to share with you featuring the Amazing Paper Grace A Little Birdie Glimmer Hot Foil Plate & Die Set from Sweet Cardlets II Collection by Becca Feeken.
For my first card I have created a dimensional box using the Amazing Paper Grace Adjustable Shadowbox Frame with 1/2″ Border Etched Dies Shadowbox by Becca Feeken. I have added flowers inside and outside of the box to create depth and there is a sentiment on the front of the box as well as inside the box. I have used watercolour paper to foil the images from the Amazing Paper Grace A Little Birdie Glimmer Hot Foil Plate & Die Set from Sweet Cardlets II Collection by Becca Feeken. These images have been watercoloured and then fussy cut out
For my second card I have used the fabulous new Amazing Paper Grace Hemstitch Slimline Etched Dies from Sweet Cardlets II Collection by Becca Feeken and decorated it with the Amazing Paper Grace Diamonetta Background Glimmer Hot Foil Plate from Delicate Impressions Collection by Becca Feeken. I have used foam tape on the outer frame of the hemstitch frame to create dimension and highlight the inner hemstitch die. White, gold and blue are a gorgeous combination.
Watercolour paper is great for hot foiling and colouring in with your favourite watercolours.

Love these projects Patricia! They are just wonderful!
Thank you so much Tara for your kind words xx
Wow and Wow. These are so pretty – I always admire your dimension and composition. You excel at show casing the “main event” of the card. And the colors and flowers look like they were picked from straight from the garden.
Thank you so much Mary. I had so much fun creating these cards and I just loved the little bird and wanted to showcase it well. xx
I like those sweet birds!
Thank you Evelyn xx
Wow just gorgeous!
