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.


My Projects for Today


I made a landscape aspect slimline card using the really sweet Deer Friend Glimmer Hot Foil Plate and Die Set.  


I love the little floral headdress on the foiled image of the little deer and decided to give it a little 3D look by adding some little die-cut flowers.   I used some flowers and leaves from the Amazing Paper Grace May Die of the Month to further enhance my card, together with a few mulberry paper flowers from my craft stah.


The topper background is from the Snowflake Splendor Etched Die set



These are the dies that are included in the Deer Friend Glimmer Hot Foil and Die Set:-



I really think this little set is delightful and is my personal favourite from the new collection.



I decided to make and decorate a simple little box.  


Again, I used some mulberry paper flowers from my stash to decorate the headdress.  If you follow me, you may have noticed my fondness for pink and gold girly projects and this one is no exception.   I used the Elegant Twist Squares Etched Dies for the background.  The box measures 3-3/4 square to give you an idea of the size and is 1-1/4" deep.  



To make the box:-

Card stock measures 10" x 7-1/8" inches.

Long side score @ 1-1/8" 4-3/4", 5-7/8" and 9-1/2" inches
Short side score @ 5/8", 1-1/4", 5-3/8" and 6-1/2" inches.

Cut away the sections marked with a pink cross in the photo illustration below:-


Cut down the four square corner sections indicated in the photo below, round off edges of the closing flaps, add double sided tape where indicated:-
