Yellow & Black Card Challenge

Click >HERE< for the "Something New" Badge Winners

Hello and welcome to another Cards in Envy card challenge! We have a color combo challenge for you this time:  YELLOW & BLACK.  That means we want to see cards that show a lot of yellow & black.  It's okay to have a bit of other colors in with them but when we look at your card we do want the yellow & black to be what we notice.  And as always, your card may be any size and any shape but MUST be flat enough to fit in an envelope for mailing.  

Our Cards in Envy Designers have created some wonderful card examples to inspire you.  Click on the blog name by each designers name for more details about their card creations.

We'd love to see your "Yellow & Black" 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 September 2, 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!
