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 a sweet card for you featuring the gorgeous Amazing Paper Grace Cup of Kindness Glimmer Hot Foil Plate & Die Set from Sweet Cardlets II Collection by Becca Feeken. I do enjoy a lovely cup of tea with my breakfast!
For my card I have teamed the Cup of Kindness dies with the gorgeous Amazing Paper Grace Petite Picot Square Etched Dies by Becca Feeken. I have trimmed the scallop edge foiled image to stand out against the white picot edges of the square dies. For the the tea pot and cup I have foiled the images using Iris cardstock and coloured the images with Zig Clean Colour Brush Markers.
The flowers are handcrafted using the Amazing Paper Grace and I have a tutorial on the Amazing Paper Grace -Encouragement Group. I have used Amazing Paper Grace Cinch and Go V Etched Dies Vintage Treasures by Becca Feeken, Amazing Paper Grace Sweet Cottage Flowers Etched Dies 3D Vignette Mini Album Collection by Becca Feeken and the Amazing Paper Grace Die of the Month – March 2020 Elegant Infinity.
This Sweet Cardlets II collection works really well with all the Amazing Paper Grace square dies.
