I just went to

http://main.Cricut.com/shopping/ProductLanding.aspx

to find out about the different machines and it looks like you would have to read each machine’s blip. I did not find a comparison chart. But they have a good sale on a pink colored Expression for $ 179, usuall it is $ 299. and comes with 1 cartridge. I just got am Expression from JoAnn’s for $ 159 on Black Friday, so watch for sales at JoAnn’s and Cricut. eBay has great deals on the cartridges, but be sure to read to comments on sellers who are less than 100% before buying from them.

JoAnn has more machines listed than Cricut right now, so you might be able to learn what it is you seek.

I am a cardmaker also, but really use the extra width of the expression for cards that fold and for envelopes, etc. I also like the extra width and length for cutting vinyl designs. I am active in many Cricut forums and I can confidently say that most people who buy the smaller Cricuts look forward to upgrading them whereas I can’t think if anyone who regrets starting out with the larger machine.
I can’t say what your costs are there in the UK, but here in the US the larger machines are very reasonably priced now.
