Introducing Amazing Paper Grace | Sweet Cardlets II

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.

Here is what the dies look like:  

For today, I prepared a slimline card using GLP-286 A Little Birdie and S6-176 Hemstitch SlimlineAs a base card, I used grey cardstock. Then using alcohol markers I colored white paper to achieve a very similar colour to this on the bird. I put this blue paper under a die-cut with hemstitch.

Using the Glimmer Hot Foil Roll GLF-023 Pewter I foiled a little bird. This is a kind of brown colour. Then I colored it with markers. The floral frame is foiled with similar colour but a little lighter. I used GLF-005 Copper

This set includes 4 plates that are sentiments. I choose "A Little Birdie Told Me...." and "It's Time to Celebrate!"

My second project is a square card. I used white, gold, and mint paper. 

I foiled a bird, floral frame, and sentiments using a gold foil. I think this is the best colour to work with. The flowers are colored by markers as well. 

Each of our Creative Team members will show you their take on cards made with the Sweet Cardlets II Collection.
