Did you use the Mail Merge Wizard? I can never remember how the wizard works. Here is a set up steps I worked out for a colleage. The output was Avery Labels, but that should work for your Avery Cards.

Mail Merge Wizard steps.
(i) Select Labels and Click on Next on Bottom
(ii) Select Change Document Layout, click on Label options and Select type 8160  <-- select your type
(iii) Select Recipients, use existing list, select Browse, click on Desktop and select Christmas Address List (or other list). Use First Address Table list and click on OK. See that the whole list is already selected and click OK
(iv) Arrange Labels
    Note: Plae cursor in the first label on the screen (which is blank) and not any other label.
    Click on More Items which shows Insert Merge Fields.
    Select all given fields using Insert button or double clicking on each field.
    Notice the fields are now in the first label.
    Edit label
    Click on Update all labels
(v) Preview
(vI) Complete merge and print.

Try that and see if it works. The trick is to work through each and every step on the Wizard. Your precise steps may vary if you have a different version .
