Graceful Protea Card


Hi everyone, it’s Cheryl with you today, and I’m sharing this card I made using the Graceful Protea Stamp and Colour Acrylic Stamp Set.

*You must use blending paper for alcohol markers, otherwise the colours will bleed. Likewise, you also need to use the correct ink for stamping, otherwise you will end up with the black ink (or whatever colour you use) on your markers, plus the lines will smear.


First I coloured the image using the above colours, then all that was left was to turn it into a card. Once coloured the process was very simple. I matted the image up using Copper Glitter Paper, then added that to a yellow card base, as I felt the colour matched the image well.

Lastly I cut out the ‘congrats’ die (from the Celebrate Sentiment Cutting Die set). I cut this twice – once with the Copper Glitter Paper, and once using the same cardstock as the base. Lastly I slightly offset them and added to the bottom of the card. I put it on an angle trying to avoid covering up too much of the colouring.

That’s it – all done.
