Hi! I am having trouble with any cards sizes on the Cricut cartridges. I just bought the "Simple Cards" cartridge, the Creative Cards one, and some cards that were on the free ones in Cricut Craft Room. I don't understand why they end up having to be less than 4" and they look like mini cards. Is this true of most of them?I think I saw one on the "Simple Cards" that will only cut out at 2 3/4" but I really want them bigger if I can...

You could buy the 12 x 24 mat and make them bigger that way.

My problem I think is that the cartridges are set to make all of them on that cartridge small! I had a lot of trouble getting the card aimed the right direction too. I can cut out a basic 4 1/4" x 5 1/2" card base but it won't help me to make the cards on the cartridge! When they say to make the envelope first, do I use "Fit to Page" and then go with that size for everything?!

That's what I do. I make the envelope fit to the pageand then use that number in making the rest of the card.

Why would she need a 12x24 Mat?

I'm pretty certain these cards were designed for the standard A2 size card ~ 4.25 x 5.5. However, you can size them however you want.

With your Cricut, the size you enter on the dial is always the height of the image. It looks like there are both horizontal and vertical cards on the cart. So for the horizontal card {top fold}, set the size to 5.5 for both the card and the insert. For the vertical card {side fold}, set the size for 4.25 for both the card and insert.

There is one envelope for each type of card and you use the same size for your envelope.
