I got a Gazelle for Christmas, but I haven’t learned how to use it yet, and it’s a bit different in that it uses software, not cartridges. 

Looks like you can buy a direct digital download right from the cricut site

For my own invites I did a cheater liner.  I just cut a square piece with a rounded corner punch at the top.  It didn’t cover the entire inside of the envelope, but I figured nobody would really care/be peeking down inside the envelope to check.

It’s perfect then.  I bought a flat sheet wrapping paper from papersource and cut it into 5″ strips, and then cut the strip into 5″ segments.  (I think my envelopes were A6 so you’d have to adjust to your size)  Turn on a diagonal and fold in half, round the top corner and then you just press it into the envelope fold.  I was able to bang out all the liners in less than 30 minutes.

@hiroshymatetrastar:  So easy to do.  Trace your envelope with the flap open.  Cut a fourth of an inch off each side and voila you have a pattern.  Trace it on heavier cardstock for durability.

We lined all our invites and used Paper Source envelopes(they sell envelope liner templates for all their envelopes) and paper.  To save money I actually photocopied the patterned paper(it was $6 a sheet otherwise!) we used to line the envelopes.  Here is the mock-up, the wrap was actually cut bigger for the actual invites.  Use Zig-zag glue for a good stick.

i have a silhouette… same idea, different company. can the cricut use SVG files? i’m sure you could find an SVG file of a liner and use that if the cricut can use that kind of file (i think it may require extra software… i can’t remember)
