Little Claire Likes - Santa's Hat Candle

Good morning and welcome to another 'Little Claire Likes' project. Every week on a Monday morning, we share a project with you using one of our stamp sets from our extensive range.
Today, we are showcasing one of our recently launched stamps - 'Santa's Hat'. Its a very comical image, which will bring a smile to anyone that receives a card/gift with it on.
You can purchase this lovely little stamp set for only £3.50 (normally £5.50) for a limited time only. If stocks last, this offer will finish on Thursday, 30th October 2014.  You can pop on over to the website HERE to purchase yours.
Heidi has made a quick little Christmas gift using the set. An altered candle using some red card, gold embossing powder and gold ribbon, as shown above.
Here are the products used :
Gold Embossing Powder
Gold Sparkly Ribbon
Candle from Sainsbury's

(2) Cut a strip of red bazzill card to fit your candle, ensuring it overlaps slightly at the back.
(3) Using the 'Super Stamping Mat' and Versafine inkpad, stamp up image 'Santa's Hat' image, onto red bazzill card.
