Trick or Treat Card Challenge

Click >HERE< for the Creepy Crawlies Badge Winners for our last challenge!

Halloween will be here in about two weeks!  Have you made a Halloween card yet?  No?  How about making at least one for our TRICK OR TREAT challenge?  Yes, that is our challenge theme starting today.  Halloween cards that make us think of "Trick or Treating."  All cards linked for this challenge MUST BE flat enough to fit in an envy for mailing, A2 size (4.25" x 5.5").  If you create a shaped card, you MUST share the measurements of your card and NO SQUARE CARDS.  If your card does not fit our challenge requirements, it will be deleted with no comment.  Almost every challenge, we have to delete 2 or 3 entries for not following our stated requirements, so please read carefully and make sure your card is a CARD IN ENVY card.

And now for some Trick or Treat card inspiration from our Cards in Envy Designers!  Please click on the blog link by each designer's name to go to their blog for more details about their creation and leave them some comment love!

Now it's time for you to create a TRICK OR TREAT card and share it with us in the linky below. Make sure it is an A2 card (4.25" x 5.5")  flat enough to fit in an envy for mailing.  

Here are a few reminders about our challenge requirements:
  • No square or shaped cards(shaped cards allowed IF you list the size of your card--height and width). All cards entered must be A2 size (4.25" x 5.5")
  • No lumpy, bumpy cards.  Elements on your card need to be relatively flat (no thicker than 1/4")
  • 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: TRICK OR TREAT

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 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 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 unless you provide the measurements of your shaped card.   Challenge ends Sunday, November 1, 2015 at 6:00 p.m. Central Time.
