White on White Card Challenge

Click >HERE< for the "You're the Man" Badge Winners


It's time for a new card challenge!  Our theme this time may be a bit more difficult or easier, depending on who you ask.  We are looking for WHITE ON WHITE CARDS.  Please see the designer examples for more clarification.  No color paper or embellishments--white only, please. You may use  a black or color ink if needed for your sentiment and black ink for your image but do not add color.  When we look at your card we must see white on white.  Your card can be any size and any shape but has to be flat enough to fit in an envelope for mailing. This would be a great time to make some beautiful wedding cards or snowy winter Christmas cards.

As mentioned above, if you are confused on the White on White challenge theme, look to these fabulous samples by our CIE Designers.  For more details about their card creation, click on the blog name link by their name and while there please leave them some comment love.

We'd love to see your  White on White cards. Please read over our challenge requirements and then share your card in the linky at the end of this post. 

Here are a few reminders about our challenge requirements:
  • No lumpy, bumpy cards.  Elements on your card need to be relatively flat (no thicker than 1/4") so your card would fit in an envy (envelope) for mailing
  • Limit entries to 3 per challenge.
  • No Back Linking--cards must be posted to your blog or an 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.
  • Cards Only--NO TAGS

Additional rules can be found under the Challenge Guidelines tab at the top under our blog header.

Our Designers will be voting on the cards after the challenge ends and the winners will be announced by Wednesday morning  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 considered the best overall card for the theme.  The Designers will also pick one card as their personal favorite for an IN THE MAILBOX badge. 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 are a winner. 

THIS IS A CARDS ONLY CHALLENGE--NO TAGS.  Entries not following our rules and not for the current challenge theme will be deleted without notice or comment. We accept any size/shape of card BUT all cards must be flat enough to fit in an envy for mailing (no thicker than 1/4") which means no lumpy, bumpy embellishments. Challenge ends Sunday, July 2, 2017 at 6:00 p.m. Central Daylight Savings Time. 

Leave a comment and link your White on White card in the linky below. We prefer that your card be showcased on your blog and linked to our challenge blog post.  If you do not have a blog, you may link your Instagram post of a photo of your card.  Videos are not allowed.Thank you for sharing your card that is flat enough to mail in an envelope with us at Cards in Envy!

  1. This is a wonderful challenge and I love the cards that are shown. May I ask, how does one who is interested in submitting a card for the challenge do so if they do not have a blog? Obviously, I have never entered any challenge before, but I'm hoping to change that (courage to submit is somewhat of a 'challenge' for me). Thank you!

    1. Hi Nancy, thank you for your interest in our card challenge. I've added an acceptable way to share your card with us in this post as a new guideline as I have had others share that do not have a blog. We prefer that your card be showcased on a blog and linked to our challenge blog post. However, if you do not have a blog, you may link your Instagram post of a photo of your card. These are the acceptable ways to share as you must be able to link an online photo of your card to our blog post via InLinkz and have a way for us to leave a comment and if you were to be a winner, we would like for you to be able to share our badge with others and a blog is the best way to do that. Thanks again! Sandy, CIE challenge host
