The first card I made was a Birthday card…it seems I’m ALWAYS in need of a birthday card to give to someone! J

Dotty for You HipHooray card
Here you will see the dotted paper that is on the BACK of every sheet of Dotty for YOU paper!  There are many coordinating colors of the dots on the back – this one happens to be a shade of Lagoon.

The Sweet Leaf Grosgrain Ribbon coordinates BEAUTIFULLY with this paper pack…I  know I will be ordering more of this ribbon! J

I also used the Paradise Paper flowers and the blue/green sparkles to add a center to the flower.

Dotty for You hiphooray close upI used the Cricut Art Philosophy Cartridge for my shapes to stamp and layer my sentiment…and then used 3D foam tape to “pop” up the sentiment!

There are SOOO many babies being born in my community and I knew my next card was going to be a Baby card!  So, I laid out my New Arrival Stamp set…and started creating!
Dotty for You_elephant card
I needed a GIRL baby card, so I thought putting together the smoothie zig zags and the sweet leaf dots from the back of the papers went together well. 

Again, I used the Cricut Art Philosophy cartridge to cut out the scalloped square on which I stamped the elephant on.  Yay – for Faster. Simpler. Easier!!!

I wanted to make the elephant stand out a bit – but I didn’t want to color it in…so I chose to paper piece it instead.  What do you think??


I hope you enjoyed my cards and that YOU can create some of your own!!!  Be sure to let me know which one was YOUR favorite. J
If you haven’t already done so, please “HOP” on over to Susan Brook’s Blog to see her work using the Dotty For You paper pack!
