The Perfectly Preserved Stamp Set is the stamp set of the month for Stamp Kit of the Month.

I love this stamp set because you can use it for several occasions .. Christmas, Thanksgiving, Teacher Appreciation ….the list goes on and on.

I used Real Red card stock and embossed it with the Vintage Wallpaper Embossing Folder … or you could use the Lacy Brocade Embossing Folder that can be found in the Stampin Up! Holiday Catalog.

The greeting is from the More Merry Messages and I stamped it with Early Espresso ink and cut it out with the Decorative Label Punch.

You’ll need the Cannery Framelits as well as Merry Minis Punch Pack to make this card.

The lid of the jar was made with the Candlelight Christmas Designer Series Paper and tied with Linen Thread.

Once the card is complete … Spray it with Champagne Mist Shimmer Paint mixed with alcohol.

p.s. I’m a tad behind on the 12 Weeks of Halloween … I’m sorry but my energy level took a nose dive and I’ve really been struggling!! After three weeks of battling it I called my doctor and they referred me to a endocrinologist .  I saw her today …she ordered blood work and hopefully I’ll get an increase in my thyroid medicine.  It’s crazy a month ago I was feeling fantastic and then boom … it’s like I have weights attached to my body!!
