Love You So Much! Card Challenge

Click >Here< for our Tuxedo Badge Winners!

Hello crafty card makers!  Happy February, the month of LOVE!  We're thrilled that you've stopped by and hope you will join us in our card challenge.  This time (because February is the month of Love) we challenge you to create cards for our theme "Love You So Much!"  We will be looking for your Love cards or Valentine Cards.  They can be any shape and any size as long as they are flat enough to fit in an envelope for mailing. Cards that have extra thick embellishments such as buttons, metal, hard roses etc. will not be accepted for our challenge. Please read our guidelines before linking your card.  Thank you so much!

We've said goodbye to Kathy as a Cards in Envy Designer. We will miss her but we are excited to introduce you to Nancy Frustaci.  Nancy is not new to card making.  She has entered in our challenges in the past and has a website/blog where she sells some of her creations at:  http://www.nancygracecreations.com/  Please welcome Nancy to our team and check out her bio/photo on our Designer page.

For our "Love You So Much" card challenge, our CIE Designers have created a wonderful assortment of Love or Valentine Cards to give you ideas and inspiration.  Please click on their blog name above each card for more details about their creations.

Can't wait to see what you all create and share!

We'd love to see your LOVE YOU SO MUCH (Love & Valentine) cards. Please read over our challenge requirements and then share your card in the linky at the end of this post. 

Here are a few reminders about our challenge requirements:
  • No lumpy, bumpy cards.  Elements on your card need to be relatively flat (no thicker than 1/4") so your card would fit in an envy (envelope) for mailing
  • Limit entries to 3 per challenge.
  • No Back Linking--cards must be posted to your blog or an 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.
  • Cards Only--NO TAGS

Additional rules can be found under the Challenge Guidelines tab at the top under our blog header.

Our Designers will be voting on the cards after the challenge ends and the winners will be announced by Wednesday morning  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 considered the best overall card for the theme.  The Designers will also pick one card as their personal favorite for an IN THE MAILBOX badge. That means we may have up to 10 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 are a winner. 

THIS IS A CARDS ONLY CHALLENGE--NO TAGS.  Entries not following our rules and not for the current challenge theme will be deleted without notice or comment. We accept any size/shape of card BUT all cards must be flat enough to fit in an envy for mailing (no thicker than 1/4") which means no lumpy, bumpy embellishments. Challenge ends Sunday February 18, 2018  at 6:00 p.m. Central Standard Time. 

Leave a comment and link your card in the linky below. We prefer that your card be showcased on your blog and linked to our challenge blog post.  If you do not have a blog, you may link your Instagram post of a photo of your card as long as we can go to the link and leave a comment.  Links to photo album on Google or that are password protected  and  videos are not allowed.  Thank you for sharing your card that is flat enough to mail in an envelope with us at Cards in Envy!  


Please use your FIRST name and LAST INITIAL for your inlinkz entry name.
