July 2012 Card Challenge

We have been getting a few requests for a card challenge and as we love challenges here it is – our first ever Card Challenge!

As you know the summer is usually a time of national celebrations around the world with the likes of Independence Day in America and Bastille Day in France but the summer of 2012 is a huge celebration of Britain with the Jubilee and the London Olympics taking place. So for this challenge we decided to go all “Pride of Britain” with a colour combination challenge:

So we are asking you to create a card (any size, shape or style) following this combination of red, white and blue and as I am not one to leave you without an example here is my card:

July Card Challenge example

I used some gorgeous bits from the Miss Match paper pad as well as the “Cherish” and the “Number background” stamps.

The prize is a gorgeous Vintage Timeless paper pad! I really can’t wait to see your entries!

We do hope that you have fun with our challenge and that we bring some inspiration your way. Every month I love to look through all your gorgeous entries but please make sure you follow the challenge rules as we are sad to have on occasion to remove some entries as they didn’t follow those rules. You can find a full list of the Challenge rules on the Monthly Challenge page but we would like to politely remind readers that:

  1. anyone who puts their entry on their own blog must link back to this post (http://www.merlyimpressions.co.uk/blog/cardmaking/july-2012-card-challenge/) so that all your visitors can find the gallery below and enjoy all the fabulous cards being created
  2. each creation entered must be “new” (not previously entered into a Merly Impressions or any other challenge)

It can be difficult for us to view any of your entries linked through Facebook therefore we are kindly asking you if you could please post your photos on the Merly Impressions page as this should make it easier for us all to admire your work. You can also email your entries directly to us at info@merlyimpressions.co.uk and we will add them and link them through our Photobucket gallery.

Have fun !
