Let It Snow! Card Challenge

Click >HERE< for the badge winners list of the last challenge, Very Vintage Christmas!

We know most of you are super busy getting those last minute Christmas details finished, but hope that you have some extra time this week or maybe next week that you will make a card for our last challenge for this year.  Our theme is "Let It Snow" which means we want to see cards with SNOW on them--snowmen, snowflakes, snow scenes and such.  Remember ALL entries for this challenge must be A2 cards only (that's 4.25" x 5.5") AND must be flat enough to go in an envy for mailing.  NO SQUARE CARDS AND NO SHAPED CARDS. Cards that don't follow our rules and guidelines, unfortunately, will be deleted without comment.  We love all the pretty cards in different sizes and shapes but our challenge is specific and appreciate those who make cards that can be easily mailed.

And now for some inspiration by our Cards in Envy Designers.  We have a lot of beautiful snow on our cards for you!  Please click on the link by each Designers' name for more details on their card creations and leave them some comment love so they will know you stopped by.

Now it's time for you to create a Let it Snow 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: Let it Snow!

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, January 3, 2016 at 6:00 p.m. Central Time. Check back on January 4 for our first card challenge for 2016!


  1. Are these cards we make that we send to you? I made a couple cards this past weekend that I have on my computer. Would those count? Do I need to have a blog? Thanks!

    1. No, you don't send them to us. You just link the photos of your cards but you do need a blog or a flickr account or something like that to link to so we can go look at your photo of your cards and leave a comment.

  2. Merry Christmas! Thank you for letting me enter my card! Luke (age 10)

  3. Such beautiful creations from the DT! Smiles..
