Have you bought the Envelope Punch Board from Stampin’ Up! yet? It’s great for making envelopes to coordinate with your handmade cards. You can see a video about it in this blog post: Handmade Envelopes the Easy Way!
You’ll love this awesome tool, and how easy it is to make handmade envelopes with it. You can see that in the bottom left corner of the board, there is a chart with measurements for envelopes for 66 different card sizes! One of the reasons I love it, is I tend to make cards with lots of layers and embellishments. With the Envelope Punch Board, I can make an envelope slightly larger than the standard in order to accommodate the extra thickness.
Stampin’ Up! announced today that the measurements are incorrect for one size: The envelope that fits a 5 1/2″ x 8″ card. That’s not a very common card size, so it took a while before the error was noticed. The correct measurements are: The paper size is 10-5/8″ x 10-5/8″, and the score line is at 4-3/8″.
I wanted to let all of you know about the misinformation on the chart. If you already have an Envelope Punch Board, you can get a new label to put over the current measurements. If you need a new label, just call me, and I’ll have Stampin’ Up! send one out to you right away.
If you haven’t ordered yours yet, the new one will come with the correct measurements. You can order this and other cardmaking, scrapbooking, and paper crafting supplies through my online store:
