Thanks

I've had my board for a while and have found that the measurements given tend to be on the side of making the designated envelope a little "roomy".

I just now got my board out and made an envelope using the measurement on the chart for a card that is 4 x 5-1/2". It calls for 7-7/8" x 7-7/8" paper.

The envelope actually turned out to be a tad bigger than 4", and just a little more than 5-3/4" in the width.

So that might be the envie measurement you could use for your 4 x 5-3/4 cards. Give it a try and see what you think.

If you want the envelope a little larger for embellished cards, you might try the measurements for the 4 x 6 card.
