Alexandra Renke, Altenew, My Favorite Things

Altenew | Alexandra Renke | MFT | Beautiful

Happy Thursday my crafty friends. It’s a beautiful day here in Perth, 28C and sunshine, light breeze, chainsaw buzzing in the background – hahaha – you get the idea.

Today I decided to mix a few of my supplies and make another floral card.

Supplies used

Floral images

I die cut the images from Neenah Classic Crest Solar White 80lbs card stock and colored them with Ranger Distress inks using foam ink blending tools. For the rose I only used the two top layers and thin foam squares to create dimension. For the poppies I kept most of the pieces and inlaid them back when mounting the flowers to the card.


As I have a very limited amount of colored card stock I used a piece of scratch white card stock and the Zig Cornflower Blue marker to get the blue for my Beautiful word. I cut three more layers of the word and one for the shadow from white card stock and layered them to achieve dimension.


For the background I used the Altenew Striped Leaf cover die and white card stock which I foam mounted on a white card base.

To finish assembling the card I positioned and added the two poppies with dotted glue runner and used some thin foam squares to slightly raise the tips of the flowers. I then foam mounted the rose, tacked in the sentiment and added a few Nuvo Jewel Drops in Rosewater.

I hope you are having a “beautiful” day wherever you are and thank you for stopping by my blog. Until next time, have fun creating.
