On the Beach Card Challenge

Click >Here< for the Twinkle Little Stars Badge Winners

Hello everyone! Welcome to our second card challenge for the month of July!  Summer is in full swing here in the USA so we thought we'd make cards that reflect a favorite vacation destination---the BEACH!  We want to see  your cards that you create that show something ON THE BEACH.

To inspire you and get your ideas flowing, our CIE designers have some fabulous BEACH cards below.   For more details about each card creation, click on the blog link by each Designer's name.  We are sad to share that one of our amazing designers, Annie will be leaving and this is her last challenge with us.  Annie has been with Cards in Envy for four years and her cards are wonderful.  We will miss her! If you have a chance visit her blog and bid her a fond farewell.  We will be introducing our new CIE designer in our first August challenge.


Sherry, Bits of Cheer

We'd love to see your "On the Beach" card!

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 August 5, 2018  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!
