Default Card Front Dies

I saw, somewhere, maybe on a Jennifer McGuire video, a set of dies made to cut card fronts. I have a hard time getting the layers on my cards cut consistently straight and exactly the right size. I'd prefer rectangles sized in quarter inch increments, 5.25 x 4, 5 x 3.75, etc. Can anyone suggest a company that carries dies like this? TIA

Spellbinders has a line of nesting dies they call Card Creators - they have them for A2 size and for 5x7. I know when I heard of them, I couldn't fathom why anyone needed dies to just cut rectangles, but I picked up one set when I was working on some invitations and quickly decided I needed more.

If you google Spellbinders Card Creator, you'll be able to see some of what's available and some videos of how they work.

Thanks Krista, I don't want the stitched ones I don't think, although Jennifer McGuire does use those a lot. The Spellbinders are just what I had in mind, cbet, and I just ordered them. Thanks so much, both of you. SCS is the best place to come for information!

Information, enabling, whichever you prefer to call it

I figure I've spent most of my son's inheritance on things that I was directed to by others on this site; just returning the favor!
