I hope you have all had a lovely weekend.
Today I would like to share with you a slide mailer that I decorated using the new beautiful Spring Bird Crocus Rubber Stamp Set. The multi buy option for the 3 new sets can be seen here. These stamps are stunning.
I had so much fun with this project. I hope you like it.
All images have been stamped using Archival Ink and colored using water color crayons.
The panels have all been made in the same way. The images have been stamped and masked. The panels where then dipped and swished into some diluted Distress Ink. Dilute the ink by patting the ink pad onto an acrylic block and then spritz it with water.
The Front Cover
Stamp the images for the front cover, the inside front cover and the back cover onto white card stock, color the images and trim to size.
Attach the stamped pieces to the front and the inside cover of the mailer using PVA glue.
Using old book pages or pretty papers, cut out two panels and attach them to the slider with PVA glue as seen on the right hand side of the photo above.
Stamp two Crocuses (I used a stamp from the Elegant Crocus set) or stamp and cut out two Crocuses from the larger stamp image shown below. Color the two Crocuses and keep them at the side for the moment.
Tear some thin strips from a book page or pretty papers and attach these, using glue, to all of the edges as per the photos.
Attach the stamped image to the back cover using foam pads. Place the foam pads on the underside of the panel at the top and at the bottom leaving a space in the middle to place the ribbon.
The Back Cover
Apply some gold wax or paint to all of the edges of the slider including the painted area as shown below.
Finally, attach the two Crocuses using silicon or foam pads to raise the heads of the flowers slightly.
That's it from me today.
Thank you for looking.
Have a great week.
