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 slimline card for you featuring the gorgeous Amazing Paper Grace Deer Friend Glimmer Hot Foil Plate & Die Set from Sweet Cardlets II Collection by Becca Feeken and the Amazing Paper Grace Hemstitch Slimline Etched Dies from Sweet Cardlets II Collection by Becca Feeken.
For my card I have embellished the base of the card with the beautiful diamond pattern die from the Amazing Paper Grace Die of the Month – Victorian Splendor Slimline. This die fits perfectly with the Hemline Stitched dies. I have layered some dies – the Amazing Paper Grace Candlewick Circles Etched Dies Candlewick Classics Collection by Becca Feeken, the Amazing Paper Grace Picot Petite Circles Etched Dies Picot Petite Collection from Amazing Paper Grace by Becca Feeken and the Amazing Paper Grace Elegant Twist Circles Etched Dies from the Elegant Twist Collection by Becca Feeken and then added the sweet little deer. The coordinating sentiment has been matted with gold card and added to the side of the layered dies and deer.
I have finished the card by adding the flowers and leaves from the Amazing Paper Grace Die of the Month – Victorian Splendor Slimline to the sentiment and on the deer’s head.
Mix and match different dies to add dimension and interest to your cards.
