Hello everyone! Did you know that it's only a little over 5 months until CHRISTMAS???!! With that in mind, we've decided that here at Cards in Envy to have a Christmas in July challenge! Yep, we want to see CHRISTMAS CARDS! All cards linked to this challenge must be A2 size (4.25" x 5.5") and flat enough to fit in an envy for mailing.
Our CIE Design team got all jolly and came up with these fabulous Christmas cards to inspire you! Please be sure to click on their blog link by their name for more card details and to leave them comment love on their blogs. This will be Ellen's last challenge with us as a designer for awhile. We hate to see her go but she needs a break! Hopefully she'll be able to join in on our challenges from time to time and will consider coming back as a designer in the future. We will be introducing two NEW designers with our first challenge in August!

- Limit entries to 3 per challenge.
- No Back Linking. Cards must be posted to your blog or online album during the challenge dates. If it was posted online BEFORE the beginning of our challenge, it cannot be linked.
- Entry must be for the current theme: Christmas in July
Additional rules can be found under the Challenge Guidelines tab at the top under our blog header.
Our Designers will be voting on their favorite cards which will be announced on our blog the Tuesday or Wednesday following the close of the challenge.. We will have one FIRST CLASS which is the card that receives the most votes from the Designers and each Designer will pick one card as their favorite for IN THE MAILBOX. That means we may have up to 8 In the Mailbox cards for a challenge. We decided to go with this fun method as each Designer has their own unique style and preference. Each chosen may grab one of our fun badges for their blog! The badges for the challenge will be in the winners post following the close of the challenge after all the Designer votes are in. The winners will also be announced on our Facebook Page, so come Like us so you'll know quickly if you were a winner.
THIS IS A CARDS ONLY CHALLENGE. Entries not following our rules and guidelines will be deleted without notice or comment. REMEMBER! NO SQUARE or SHAPED CARDS Challenge ends Sunday, August 2, 2015 at 6 p.m. Central Daylight Time.
