ICY or HOT Card Challenge!

Icy Hot! Challenge Winners:

First Class:  #1 Carol L.

In the Mailbox: #2 Kathy Stacy, #9 Susan Kennedy and #10 Pam Korte.

Congratulations and thank you!  Please send an email to with First Class Icy or Mailbox Icy as applicable in the subject line for your winner's badge! ~Sandy

Hello! Thank you to those who joined us for our last challenge--a tag on a card.  This time we challenge you to make a CARD (A2 size only 4.25"x5.5") that is either ICY cold (winter, snowy, icy) OR a CARD that is HOT (summer, devilish, steamy).  It's your choice!

It's important though that you follow our challenge rules.  We are a CARD challenge only.  All cards must be flat enough to fit in an envelope for mailing and must be the A2 size--NO SQUARE CARDS.

We appreciate those who follow along with our challenge requirements and while we are happy and thankful for all who join in on our challenge, we hope you understand that we do have to delete and remove links that do not fit our challenge or requirements.

Our Designers have created some awesome cards that are either ICY or HOT to inspire you! Feel free to click on each designer's blog link and let them know if you visit their blog.

 Danie, D-Dazzled Scraps
Danie's card is super ICY with this gorgeous snowflake!

 Debbie, Scrap Enabler

 Wendi, Scrappy Day in Paradise

Now it's your turn. But first a few reminders:
  1. No square cards.  All cards entered must be A2 size (4.25" x 5.5")
  2. No lumpy, bumpy cards.  Elements on your card need to be relatively flat (no thicker than 1/4")
  3. Limit entries to 3 per challenge.
  4. No Back Linking.  Cards must be created after our challenge begins AND the post to your blog or online album must be during the challenge dates.
  5. Entry must be for the current theme: ICY or HOT!
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 Wednesday following the close of the challenge and on our Cards in Envy Facebook Page. We will have one FIRST CLASS and three or more IN THE MAILBOX.  Each chosen will receive one of our fun badges for their blog! The winners will also be announced on our Facebook Page, so come Like us so you'll know quickly if you were a winner.
