For example, if you cut an envelope using "fit to page" and the screen tells you it's cutting at 5 1/2", you'll then cut your card (after turning "fit to page" OFF) at 5 1/2". If you cut your card first using "fit to page" it's already as big of an image the machine can cut in that space - but the envelope HAS to be bigger (to account for the flaps) - so you have to cut the envelope first and size down from there for the card. Hope this makes sense!
Oh, I've also noticed that the envelopes on some of the newer cartridges like Sentimentals and Damask Decor are designed much better - they've changed the way the flaps are cut, so it's easier to get bigger envelopes. Just something you might want to check out!
Found Damask Decor on sale at Michael's and snatched it up. Haven't played with it yet but, looking forward to it.
