List of Wild Card and Envelope Sizes

The following is a list of the MAXIMUM size you can cut the card to get the matching envelope to fit using the Cricut Expression. Some of the cards can be cut bigger of course, but you will not get the envelope to fit. Of course, you can cut any of the cards at a smaller size and still get a matching envelope. Original Cricut (Baby Bug) users will be able to cut all the cards, but will not get a matching envelope unless the card is quite small. ALL THE CUTS WERE MADE WITH THE FIT TO PAGE OPTION

Enfys, you are wonderful for this information. I have done about 4 cards and I was writing the max on the page of the manual so I would remember. This info you have given is just fantastic. Thank you thank you.

What size mat did you use for the expression to get these sizes. I just opened the cart last night to try it out and I couldn't seem to get the size you did. I was using a 12x12 mat.

Eddy and Tiffany said...

Thanks so much for this list. I have just started to make cards and as Wild Card is not available where I live I will now be looking online to purchase this cart.

Kim said...

Thank you Enfys! I am expecting this cart in the mail this week and with your list I will hit the ground running :). Can't wait for the cart to get here.

thanks for the sizes enfys.

another way to tell what size envie that would fit on a 12 x 12 would be to into design studio and put the size you would like, then you would be able to tell if it would fit on a 12 x 12 or if you need to size the envie down or use a larger sheet of paper/card.

That does it! Now I'm opening the WC cart I bought myself for Mother's Day!

Thanks for the list! It'll save a lot of time! Especially since I'm going to have to rewrap that cart! LOL!

I know this list will be very helpful, this cartridge has so much to offer. I am confused about how to read the list. Does the inches number indicate the finished size of the envelope? I need to cut a finished 6x6, any suggestions? TFS

Linda said...

Just came over from and "Okie" site to visit your site. Thanks so much for sharing your talent.
