Dots and Dahlias Review and Giveaway...

****Congratulations to the winner-#21 redi2adopt!****

We recently had the chance to review a beautiful set of personalized notecards from Dots and Dahlias.
About Dots and Dahlias:
"Hello! My name is Julia. I'm a graphic designer and a stay-at-home mom of one. I enjoy simple and clean-lined artwork. Creating Dots and Dahlias has given me the opportunity to work, and take care of my son at home, while giving me a wonderful creative outlet."

A few of our favorite designs from Dots and Dahlias:

About the cards we reviewed:
"These folded notecards make lovely gifts for teachers, birthdays, weddings, and bridal showers, or use them as thank you notes!
8 folded notecards (4.25”x5.5”)
Blank on the inside
8 coordinating European flap envelopes
Personalized with your own greeting or name(s)
Printed on 80# smooth cream cover stock
Packaged in a clear cello sleeve and bubble mailer

What we thought: Our cards were gorgeous! The design was lovely, the colors were bold and the personalization was flawless! The envelopes matched beautifully and I'm sure these cards will brighten the day of the recipients since they bring a smile to my face each time I look at them. They are simple and beautiful, as are most of the the designs at Dots and Dahlias. Julia is super talented and her work is most impressive:) These would make great gifts...you could even use them as personalized Valentines! Shipping is super fast and Julia is truly a pleasure to work with:) Check out the wonderful variety of prints, patterns, styles and colors to make YOUR perfect stationery at Dots and Dahlias.
