I made a card with the wild card cartridge. I tried to make the envelope the same size, and it said there wasn't enough room. I was using 12x12 paper. Can someone tell me how I can make an envelope that will fit my card?

When you use Wild Card, the best thing to to is to cut your envelope first, using "Fit To Page". Make a note of what size it cuts (it will show up on your display), and then cut your card a the same size.

You could also use the Martha Stewart Score board, there is an envelope making guide included with it.

I have saved envelopes that I get from bills and have often used them as a template. I did this figuring that they were all sizes that wouldn't need extra postage. I've also used the score board and many times I will just lay the card down and make the envelope around the card. This is mostly for long cards. You just flap it over so it overlaps in the back and glue that seam. You score and cut out the the tops of the sides before you glue the overlapped seam. That leaves you with a flap at the top and bottom that can be folded down/up and glued.

Hope I didn't confuse you too much.
