St. Patrick’s Day Votive

St Pats Votive


Just a little St. Pat's decoration!  I was going to make my own shamrock with hearts, but came across this stamp in the set "Got Treats" in the Stampin' Up! 2010-2011 Idea Book & Catalog on page 55.  It is available in either wood- or clear-mount.  In order to leave off the words this time at the bottom of the stamp, I just colored in the shamrock with a Stampin' Write Marker in Garden Green.  Then I punched out the circle and mounted in on a Garden Green Scallop punch….and to jazz it up a bit, mounted that on another scallop in Brushed Gold card stock.  With my white Signo Gel Pen #105021 I added a dot on each scallop edge.  I originally wanted to wrap the votive holder with vellum stamped with shamrocks, but due to the shape of the glass it would not fit right, so I just used some 5/8" Whisper White Organza Ribbon #114219 instead (it's my favorite ribbon anyway!). 

Wouldn't this be an easy little table decoration for your St. Patrick's Day party?
