Christmas Card

Paper Casting Project

Materials Needed: 

1 Rycraft cookie stamp or craft stamp #275 – Christmas Candle
100% Cotton Linter (Rycraft Paper Casting Kit or Refill)
1 paper casting* of design 
#275 – Christmas Candle (see Basic Paper Casting Instructions).
1 blank greeting card
3 pieces of your choice of decorative papers and colors cut to 2 1/2" square,  2 7/8" square and 3 1/4" square
Paper Edgers™ Scissors
Clear acrylic varnish 

Acrylic paints: metallic gold, red, green
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 raised design and leave the background unvarnished.
2. Apply paints one at a time. Let dry between coats.
3.  Optional: Apply another coat of varnish to protect painted casting.
4.  Cut papers to fit your card and then to fit one over the other leaving a nice border. Glue 3 pieces together and let dry. Then glue them to the card.
5.  Glue casting to center of top paper on card.
