Spring Crocus Friendship Card -- for We Are 3 Digital Shop

I love crocus, and they are just starting to poke up their pretty spring heads where I live.  I plant them every fall, and the squirrels and chipmunks follow right behind and feast on the bulbs.  But, a few survive and greet me with a springtime treat!  In honor of spring, and wonderful friends who brought us Easter dinner last week, I made this spring crocus card using the beautiful Margaret's Irises papers from We Are 3 Digital Shop:

Isn't that pretty as a picture?  Just like this beautiful crocus flowers?

The crocus is a double sided die from Crafter's Companion.  They have quite a few of these, and they are a lot of fun.  They cut out very quickly because you can cut multiple layers with one pass.  The banner die is also from Crafter's Companion.  The computer generated sentiment fit on it perfectly.

We Are 3 Digital Shop has gorgeous papers (like this one), but also printables, digital images, and sentiments.  You can truly find whatever you are looking for at the We Are 3 Digital Shop

  1. Julie, Beautiful Die cut card! Love the Iris backdrop! Thank you for sharing!
    Stay Safe, Stay in and Stay healthy!

  2. Love this flower! Thanks for the links. I love that paper. I added 2 of her paper packs to my Etsy cart. Couldn't find that die on Amazon. :( Feel free to link up your projects in my Crafting Happiness Challenge blog. It's always anything goes with an optional twist each week. This week the optional twist is purple. Your card would be perfect for that!

  3. I agree, this is gorgeous! The colors are stunning. Even though the blue background is bold and bright, the purple and green crocus really just pops!

    Thanks for joining us at Cut it Up for Our Beautiful Earth challenge!
