if you got a prebaked image of a bootable cm card from somewhere, then it usually has 4 partitions on it that were set to the sizes the author of the card specified.
You would need to put the card in a PC, and use a disk partitioning utility to resize the partitions
some of the images include additional flash files that you install to expand the card's partitions for you. (succulent's), but
you have to do it as you install for the first time.
I prefer to build the card empty first, and load the boot files and zips manually.
linux tools like gparted, Parted Magic , booting from a live USB or CD work pretty well.
Windows based ones like Easus Partition master, or Paragon, not so good.
Mini Tool partition wizard (windows/free) sometimes works
this looks to be a decent write up
