Slide Mailers

Several years ago I bought some slide mailers from Lin but haven't really used them much. So today - after I'd (whisper it) done some tidying up in my living-come-craft room (yes, I know!! check out the results on Wednesday) I came across some in a drawer.

The outside is coloured with chipped sapphire, the inside with tumbled sage.

I stamped Tim's mini flourish front and back in walnut stain and outlined some of the flourishes with a white Inkessentials pen, the "believe in  yourself" is Wendy's.

On the inside I used chipped sapphire for the flower border (Wendy Vecchi) and stamped the penny black Gandhi quote on a scrap of white card and stuck it inside the mailer, edging with glitter glue.

This is the finished piece - the Wendy heart is grungepaper coloured with barn red distress ink, some silver bling and rock candy distress stickles on the top part.
It kept me away from the chocolate for a while!!

Hope you've all had a great Easter.
