The Challenge


A big Happy New Year to all you creatives! We know many of you have been waiting patiently for a new design challenge so here it is, our ‘New Year New Shapes’ design challenge for this year. Our past die-cut design challenges were so successful that we’re launching even more unique die cut shapes.



For this design competition we require 1x wedding invitation, 1x Birthday invitation and 1x engagement invitation. You can use any shape you like from the templates we’ve provided however the designs do need to be moderately cohesive. A mood-board and a complete set of instructions are provided in the designer kit along with the design templates and coloured stocks for you to choose from. Good luck & have fun!
