Layers, layers, layers.  We're looking for layers!

Hello, it's time for a new challenge!  For this one we'd like to see your A2 (4.25"x5.5") card creations that have paper LAYERS!  Remember, that your card needs to be relatively flat (no lumpy, bumpy embellishments, flowers, buttons etc.)  so be careful with using too many layers, but you can use as many layers as you'd like as long it still fits in an envy!   Total thickness of the card and envelope should be no more than 1/4" so it will fit through the post office guide, if it's thicker than that,  it will cost extra postage and will not be a card for our Cards in Envy challenge.

For this challenge we have a Guest Designer!  Kristie Marcotte of The Best Things in Life are Pink!   Kristie will officially be joining as a full time designer in August so watch for her photo and bio here on the blog after the first.  Here's Kristie's card featuring LAYERS to inspire you in this challenge. Kristie, we're thrilled to have you joining us!  Your card is adorable and perfect  for Cards in Envy!

And now, more inspiring  cards with paper LAYERS by our Cards in Envy Designers!

 Denise (Scrappy D's House of Cards) 
Please note: Denise's card is a square and was made before the challenge rule of no square cards was added to our rules. Her card does fit in a regular size envelope for mailing in the USA. In the future, all designer cards for Cards in Envy will be the A2 size to avoid confusion with our challengers.

Fabulous cards! Be sure to visit our Designers and let them know you love their cards!

And now, a bit of info about our challenge:  The challenge starts today, Monday, July 15th  at 12:00 a.m. Central Time and ends August 4th  at 11:55 p.m. Central Time.  After the challenge ends,  the Designers will pick one card  as the "First Class" Winner for best all around card and three or more cards will be chosen as "In the Mailbox" for runners up.  All "winners' will be awarded one of ourcute Cards in Envy badges to proudly display on their own blog.  Please limit your entries to 3 per challenge.

We have deleted a few entries that did not follow our guidelines. Please note we do not accept square cards for our challenges and no lumpy bumpy flowers or buttons etc.  Thank you!
