Hunkydory Crafts Cuddly Christmas - Part 1

Posted by Debbie on

Sunday October 15, was our 15th anniversary. 

There aren't very many on-line stores that can claim to be 15 years old. Let's recap some of the changes between then and now: In 2002, eBay was primarily a site that sold Beanie Babies. Amazon was primarily selling books, and while they were beginning to expand into other areas, the sales process was still in it's infancy. Distributors couldn't quite see our vision for an on-line retail store. It was difficult to find wholesalers. When I opened this business, Lauren, my youngest daughter was 3 years old. Now she is a Freshman in college!

Oh, how time flies! Not only did our little web store survive, we flourished and we have grown steadily. Now, new vendors contact us to see if we will sell and promote their products. We get to be picky to ensure that we bring you the best products, and selections, and service.

.

This is a great time to say thank you for enabling us to do what we love and what better way than savings! Our customers are the best and my family and I look forward to serving you for the next 15 years!

As always, please feel free to email us if you have questions, comments, or suggestions. We appreciate your feedback and we try to respond to every comment. Happy crafting!

Cuddly Christmas Supplies List

The following supplies list includes supplies used in Cuddly Christmas Part 1. We are listing an expansive list of cards because, as you know, you can make Hunkydory cards in the size and style of your choice.

Please don't be intimidated by the size of the supplies list. In many cases you can substitute supplies from your own collection. We list everything so that we can provide you with links in case you are looking for a particular item.

We use cards by Hunkydory Crafts and many other vendors. Here is a summary link to the Cards and Envelopes available from Hunkydory LINK. Here is a link to the card blanks and envelopes available from other brands LINK. Following are links to specific sizes:

DL = 8" x 4" These cards are great as a card blank for Hunkydory printed cardstock with that lovely border art! LINK

A2 (US) = 4.25" x 5.5" LINK

A4 (European) = 8.25" x 11.7" This is the size of a sheet of Adorable Scorable. We also sell giant card blanks in this size! LINK

A5 (European) - Approx. 5.85" x 8.25" This is the size you get when you score and fold a sheet of A4 cardstock.LINK

A6 (US) = 5" x 6.5" We use a lot of these. Most manufacturers pair this size with 5x7" envelopes. LINK

A6 (European) = Approx 4" x 6" (these vary slightly from company to company) LINK

A7 (US) = 5" x 7" LINK

A7 (European) 2-7/8" x 4-1/8" These are less common but since we sell these little cards in our store, I thought I would add them to the list. LINK

4" x 4" Square LINK

5" x 5" Square LINK

6" x 6" Square LINK

7" x 7" Square LINK

8" x 8" Square LINK

Specialty Cards are available in a large number of styles and dimensions. Please see the item descriptions for the size of each choice. We used three specialty styles in Cuddly Christmas Part 1.

Hunkydory Country Cottage Window Shape Cards LINK

6" x 6" Gatefold LINK

HOTP Center Step = 5" x 6.5" LINK

These sizes are based on the size of the cards. Envelopes are usually 1/4" larger. For those of you that like to make your own card blanks, we sell a variety of sizes of envelopes LINK and card boxes LINK.
