It's Birthday Party Time! Card Challenge

Click >HERE< for the Get Negative Badge Winners!

We have a new card challenge on the first and third Monday of each month.  And for this month's third Monday, we're celebrating It's Birthday Party Time! (Not necessarily our birthday but we know it's someone's somewhere!) Therefore, we want you to create a birthday card and link your blog post featuring that card in the inlinkz at the bottom of this post!  Please use your first name and last initial for your name/description.  All cards must be flat enough to fit in an envelope for mailing but may be any size or shape.  We hope you'll join us for this challenge!

For inspiration,  check out these birthday cards by our Cards in Envy Designers!  More details on each card can be found on their own blogs by clicking on the link by each designer's name.


Sherry, Bits of Cheer

We'd love to see your IT'S BIRTHDAY PARTY TIME cards!

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.  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 May 6th  at 6:00 p.m. Central Daylight Savings Time. 

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. 

Thank you for sharing your card that is flat enough to mail in an envelope with us at Cards in Envy!  

Please use your FIRST name and LAST INITIAL for your inlinkz entry name.  


  1. Wow! Great cards by the DT love all the different styles. Thank you for the inspiration y'all.

  2. You girls know how to party! Your cards are fabulous! I did pop my cake plate and cupcake up on very thin foam tape, but it still fits easily into an A2 envy. However, if you feel it's too too foo foo, no worries. It is a lot more foo-foo than I normally do, lol! Hugs, Darnell

  3. Super party inspired cards from the DT, had fun playing along!

  4. Thanks for the much-needed nudge to take a break from father's day cards to make a birthday card for a good friend. Love all the DT's fun cards!
