Slide Mailer Card

Hi everyone,
I have a quick and special little project 
that I have created using materials from Meg's Garden.
In particular, using a microscope slide mailer with the two slots.

Front cover


Outside cover
I made a very quick step by step on
this project.......

1. Cut out the middle of the insert of the 
Microscope slider mailer

2. Prime your slide mailer
with two coats of white Gesso. 
Leave to dry.

3. Apply, Wild Honey, Broken China Distress
Stains or paints. Blending the colours together, 
until you are happy with the results.

4. Using Rubber stamps , apply your selected designs
with black memento ink pad. I have used
TJ Design Elements rubber stamp collection
for the outside of the folder. 

For the inside I used
some Paris rubber stamps.

5. Decorate the front with metal elements and flower.

6. Cut out the vintage ladies images from the 
(I cut 3 images and then glued in the centre of the slide panels, decorate with metal embellishments around the edges.
on spine of slide folder.

Cut a butterfly from the 
glue on mailer as shown.

entire face of the clock rubbing on raised areas, 
and gently revealing the silver numbers and details of the clock.
