#015 – Grapes 
#223 –Basket Heart

Materials Needed:

1 Rycraft cookie stamp or craft stamp #015 – Grapes
1 sheet 100% Cotton Linter (Rycraft Cotton Linter)
1 paper casting* of design  #015 – Grapes  (see Basic Paper Casting Instructions).
1 blank greeting card 
2 pieces of decorative papers : we used a piece of metallic gold cut to approx. 3" square, and a piece of purple and gold decorative paper to match the purple paints we used, cut to 2 3/4" square.
Clear acrylic varnish 
Acrylic paints: 3-4 shades of purple,  metallic gold

*Note:  Alternately, the casting for this project may be made from clay instead of paper (see Basic Clay Casting Instructions). The choice is yours.


1. Let casting dry completely. Then varnish the casting to seal it before painting (so wet paint won't make design disappear). Let dry. Optional: Apply a 2nd coat of varnish for more permanence. Variation: Varnish only the thistle design and leave the background unvarnished.
2. Apply metallic gold to leaves as shown, and let dry. Then apply 3 shades of purple to different grapes as shown and let dry.
3.  Optional: Apply another coat of varnish to protect painted casting.
4.  Cut papers to fit your card and to then fit one over the other leaving a nice border. Glue 2 pieces together and let dry. Then glue them to the card.
5.  Glue casting to center of top paper on card.
