If the bounds of the printout overrun the available print area, LC will 
push the content down to another page. It sounds like you may have 
margins at either the top or bottom of the page that are too large to 
accomodate the height of the printout.

You can set the margins to a smaller number, or use the "print into 
rect" syntax to scale the output to fit. Remember when dealing with 
margins that the margins represent the amount of space around the rect 
of the card itself. If your fields or other controls are not at the very 
edges of the card, then they will be inset more than just the margin
