Very Vintage Christmas Card Challenge


Hi Everyone, we hate to do this in bright red but we are only a few days into this challenge and have already had to delete three entries for not following our challenge rules! PLEASE read the rules before you link your card. NO SQUARE CARDS, NO SHAPED CARDS, NO EXTRA THICK CARDS WITH THICK BOWS AND FLOWERS.  All cards MUST be flat enough to fit in an envelope for mailing in the USA and they must be an  A2 size (4.25" x 5.5").  We are sorry if you've made a card that does not fit our guidelines but this is the main part of our CHALLENGE.  Thank you!

Wow! What a great turnout we had for our last challenge! We want to thank each and every one of you for linking your beautiful cards to our blog and we want to welcome all new followers as well as our regulars.

Now it's time for a new challenge and of course, we all know what time of year it is, right?  Which means we want to see your Christmas cards. But not just any Christmas card, we want to see your Very Vintage Christmas cards--those cards you create with a vintage/antique vibe. Remember your card must be A2 size (4.25" x 5.5") AND flat enough to fit in an envy for mailing.

Our CIE Designers have once again created some awesome cards for your inspiration.  Please click on the blog link by each designer's name for more details about their card.  And leave them some comment love so they'll know you stopped by.









 Kathy, The Crafty Nurse














  Patricia, Thinking of Inking  




Sandy (Challenge Host), Sandy's Crafty Creations 




Sherry, Bits of Cheer












Now it's time for you to create a Very Vintage Christmas 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: Very Vintage Christmas Crad

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, December 20, 2015 at 6:00 p.m. Central Time.
