I do envelopes quite a bit with Scribus -- usually no fancy graphics.
I've found that is isn't worth the bother to use a custom page size. To 
start out, you need to note how envelopes feed into the printer - some 
are off to one side, some are in the middle.
Then use guide lines to help you place your graphics/text, rotate as 
needed, set up your envelope in the printer and print. You can then save 
your page with guides and even a nonprinting text frame with 
instructions on how to set it up next time.

As I'm working with the layout, I will usually try things out with 
regular paper -- if it prints on regular paper it will print on an 
envelope, as long as the envelope is positioned properly.
