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 an inspirational card for you featuring the gorgeous Amazing Shine Your Light Glimmer Hot Foil Plate & Die Set from Sweet Cardlets II Collection by Becca FeekenI.
For my card have foiled the lightouse image using Iris cardstock and coloured the image with Zig Clean Colour Brush Markers. I then added the painted lighthouse in front of a halo that I created by sponging some yellow and blue ink to the circlular rays on the background image to give the impression of light emitting from the lighthouse. I thought the round elegant twist from the Amazing Paper Grace Elegant Twist Circles Etched Dies from the Elegant Twist Collection by Becca Feeken added to the nautical theme of the card. To finish the nautical theme I have added some sand effects with gauze and some Minnie Pearl Prills.
To complete the card I have added some elegant corners from the Amazing Paper Grace Callista Rectangle Shadowbox Frame Etched Dies Shadowbox by Becca Feeken.
Add dimension to the lighthouse by die cutting three plain background dies, adhere to together and then adhere the painted image.
