Red, White AND Blue Challenge!

The badge winners for the Girls, Girls, Girls challenge have been announced >HERE<

It's coming...at least for those of us in the United States....the Fourth of July, our country's birthday! For this challenge we want to see cards that are Red, White AND Blue (our patriotic colors).  Now, your card does NOT need to be patriotic or a Fourth of July card. It can be any theme as long as it is Red, White AND Blue! Remember we only want cards that are A2 size (4.25" x 5.5") and flat enough to fit in an envy for mailing.

To inspire you and to get your creative mind working, our fabulous Cards In Envy Designers have come up with these wonderful Red, White AND Blue card creations!  Please click on the link by their name to visit their blogs for more card details and to leave them some personal comment love.

  Patricia, Thinking of Inking  




Sandy (Challenge Host), Sandy's Crafty Creations













We hope we've inspired you to create your own  Red, White AND Blue  card and share it with us in the linky below.  Make sure it is an A2 card flat enough to fit in an envy for mailing.

Here are a few reminders about our challenge requirements:
  1. No square cards.  All cards entered must be A2 size (4.25" x 5.5")
  2. No lumpy, bumpy cards.  Elements on your card need to be relatively flat (no thicker than 1/4")
  3. Limit entries to 3 per challenge.
  4. 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.
  5. Entry must be for the current theme: Red, White AND Blue
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.  PLEASE NOTE:  NO SQUARE CARDS   Challenge ends Sunday,  July 5th, 2015   at 6 p.m. Central Daylight Time.

  2. Wonderful sample cards. Love how celebratory the red/white/blue combo looks on each of them!
    Thanks for the fun challenge. I really don't use RWB too much, so it was fun getting out of my usual routine. :)
