I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE making my own cards for every occasion but sometimes find I need an odd sized envie, like 6x6, and I can't seem to find them anywhere.

Does anyone know of a place/site that caters to us card makers and our crazy sizes or do you just make your own?

HiBigGrin

When the card is odd sized, I usually make my own coordinating envelope or a card box instead of an envelope. I'll usually make the box if my card has a lot of 3D elements to it, on it :):):) Many of the cartridges have them and you can customize the envelope or box size in CCR, too.

Hope this helps!

Hugs,
Lisa

I usually buy the invitation size envelopes, but I've also made envelopes. My favorite is to just "fold" the paper around the card, seam it down the middle and cut the ends into flaps and glue them. It works the best on long cards. I did, however, recently buy envelopes that are 6x6. I "think" I got them from 7 Kids College Fund, but I'm not 100% sure. Google it and see what comes up.

Good Luck

Dee

I have all different size envelopes that I buy at www.envelopemall.com. Sometimes, my card has lots of embellies...flowers, bows, etc. Then I make my own, but it's more like a box, usually about 1/2 to 3/4 inches thick. I mail them in bubble envelopes. HTHBigGrin

Crafter's Companion have boards which can make loads of different sizes of envelopes with different depths. They are really easy to use and you can co-ordinate the paper to match the card.

Thank you ladies. I did manage to find some at our local OfficeMax but not many sizes to choose from. We will be checking out the envelopemall site too BellaBall, thank you.
