Alexandra Renke - Simple Baby Card Set

March 10, 2019


Happy Sunday! Just popping in today to share a simple card set that I made over the weekend. If you hadn't heard yet, Josh and I became licensed foster parents last November and on February 15th, we got our first placement. Two girls - a 13 month old, and her 6 week old preemie sister that was discharged from the NICU to us. Needless to say...life around here has been chaotic, and super busy. So, I don't have a lot of extra crafty time right now. And that is where these gorgeous papers & dies from Alexandra Renke come into play!

These cards took me less then an hour to put together, and now I have two gorgeous baby cards ready for the next time I need one. The cutie angel dies were actually from Alexandra's Christmas release, but I thought they would be perfect for baby cards!

To start I did all the diecutting. I diecut the angels three times: one from gold glitter paper and twice from white cardstock. Then I diecut the sentiments from white cardstock three times. I stacked and adhered them together with a Zig 2-way glue pen.

Then I cut the backgrounds from two sheets of gorgeous Alexandra Renke patterned paper, aptly named "Baby's Breath" and "Baby's Breath Rose". I adhered them to the front of A2 white card bases with full sheets of foam adhesive to give the card some dimension.

Finally I adhered the diecut angels & sentiments to each card front, then accented with matching pearls & small jewels. Super easy, and super pretty.

That is all I have for you today! Before I close, I wanted to invite you to follow me on social media. I would love to be crafty friends!


Have a great rest of your Sunday!

  5. Oh Lea, I’m so happy for you I’m struggling to keep the tears at bay! Those little girlies are the luckiest in the world to be loved and cared for by you and Josh.
    The cards are just lovely and I think they incorporate the spirit of your babies in heaven too, with those angel diecuts. Like little guardian angels for the new babies.
    Lots of love and big, huge hugs!!
