Springerle cookie stamped with Rycraft cookie stamp #020 Frosty the Snowman and cut out with square cookie cutter

Materials Needed:

1 Rycraft cookie stamp or craft stamp #020 – Frosty
100% Cotton Linter (Rycraft Cotton Linter)
1 paper casting* of design 
#020 – Frosty  (see Basic Paper Casting Instructions).
1 blank greeting card
2 pieces of your choice of decorative papers and colors (notice in the photo that the pattern of the 2 papers match, so that the leaves of the top piece line up with the leaves of the bottom piece at the edge) cut to approx. 2 1/2" square and 3" square
Clear acrylic varnish 
Acrylic paints: green, red, black, white or pearl-white
Glue

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

Instructions:

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 snowman design and leave the background unvarnished.
2. Apply pearl-white or white paint to Frosty's body and let dry. Then apply other colors, one color at a time, letting paint dry between coats so paints won't run together. 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.
