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 5″ x 5″ card to share with you featuring the stunning Amazing Paper Grace You are My Home Glimmer Hot Foil Plate & Die Set from Sweet Cardlets II Collection by Becca Feeken. I have new neighbours coming next week so this is the perfect card to welcome them to the neighbourhood.
For this card I have hot foiled the image of the houses on Iris cardstock and then coloured the images with Zig Clean Colour Real Brush Markers. I trimmed the large house and sunset image to fit inside the postage stamp foiled frame. And then to complete the card I have used the outside frame from from the Amazing Paper Grace Richelieu Square Etched Dies Flourished Fretwork by Becca Feeken that has been added using foam strips to create depth and dimension. The gold trims complement the coloured images perfectly!
Mix and match different dies to add dimension and interest to your cards.
