I love Altenew’s Layering Stamps but there is no way I would be using them without the Misti for sure. The layering set I used on this card is Peaceful Wreath. I made this my first card because the holidays are hard y’all!
With so many friends who have lost loved ones this year including myself, I had two empty chairs at Thanksgiving and they will be empty at Christmas as well and it just makes the holidays hard. I have been having a pretty rough time this month on top of it being the holiday I lost a very very dear friend this month. Christmas will be hard as I miss her so much already. She always sent me a handmade card and a gift for me and a gift for Willis from her pup.
With that being said, I am hoping that this card brings the recipient some comfort. I created this card starting with a white card base and a white panel. Using the misti of course I stamped the first half of the wreath and then flipped the panel and stamped again to complete the wreath, doing this with each layer. Once I got the wreath completed I stampe the “peace” with my favorite embossing ink and then embossed it in gold powder and then using the mini misti I added the rest of the greeting.
Thanks for spending some time with me today here on Dana’s blog. Make sure to visit each day for more holiday card inspiration.

Sorry for your loss and yes it makes the holidays hard missing them for sure. I recently lost my Father so I understand. Your card expressing peace this Christmas is so appropriate.

I’m so sorry for your losses. Holidays can be a difficult time for many people. This card is absolutely perfect! It says so much in those few words. Thank you for sharing this, I’ve never really known the best card for loss at this time.

Sorry for your loss. Life does go on and things get
better after time. It’s been 16 years since my
husband left and I still miss him but I always feel
like he is behind me, watching over me.
Your wreath is beautiful. Simple but elegant.
thanks for sharing
