2014 Christmas Cards

I decided to create my own Christmas Cards, and thought a 6x6 card would be a different size choice than the norm.

When I received them in the mail, they really turned out beautiful! However, when I went to place them in the envelope.... the card did not fit. Come to find out, the envelope size is a 6x6 instead of the 6.25x6.25 needed. So, I needed to trim 1/8" from each side (tedious!).

I will need to wait until Monday to call Stampin' Up! to discuss why this happened and to hopefully resolve the issue in the future. ****Update*** I did call Stampin' Up! on Monday and they would have mailed out to me the correct size envelopes for my cards.  But, since I had already trimmed my cards to fit the envelopes, they will make sure that this does not happen to future orders.

Supplies Used:
Background paper - Very Vanilla
Punches - Square (filled w/Textured Cardstock - Very Vanilla and Crumb Cake)
Embellishments - Basic Rhinestones
Stamp Brush Set - Endless Wishes (snowflake and words - Pool Party, Crumb Cake); Love Story (chevron - Pool Party and Crumb Cake)
Font - Broach(Very Vanilla)
