Hello and welcome to our  June 17th Themed Challenge!  We're going to be sewing or rather stitching (real or faux) on our cards for this two week challenge!  There are so many creative ways to add "stitches" to your cards by stitching on the paper (zig-zags or straight), stitching designs or other creative ways.  We can't wait to see what you have STITCHED UP for us!   Please create and share  A2 (4.25" x 5.5") cards that fit  in an envelope with no lumpy bumpy flowers, buttons or embellishments. 

The challenge starts today, Monday, June 17th  and runs until June 30th.  The Designers will pick one card  as the "First Class" Winner for best all around card and three or more cards will be chosen as "In the Mailbox" for runners up.  All "winners' will be awarded one of our new Cards in Envy badges to proudly display on their own blog.

And now some inspiring cards by our Designers featuring cards that have been STITCHED UP!  Feel free to click on each designer's blog link for more details about their card creation.  We also have three guest designers who will be creating cards with us for June and July and will then design full time for Cards in Envy starting in August.  We are pretty excited to have them here and hope you will give them a very warm welcome to Cards in Envy!

Come find us on Facebook and like our page!  We have challenge sneak peeks, weekly card quotes/sentiments and tips/discussions. Plus you can share your photos of cards you create that fit in an "Envy!"  We'd love to have you join us!

And now it's your turn to create a card...

We've had several entries that have had to be deleted as they did not fit our challenge requirements.  Please review our Challenge Guidelines before linking your card. We do not accept square cards or cards with thick embellishments especially hard thick flowers.  All cards must clearly be able to fit in an A2 envelope for mailing at the first class postage rate.  Thank you for your understanding.
