Default Chevron Embossing Folder

I've been seeing some cards lately that have used a Chevron embossed background. I searched the internet to see if I can find such a embossing folder and have see that Darice has 2 folders available. One measures 4.25 x 5.75 and the other is a 5 x 7.

They both look the same in the pictures but I was wondering if someone has seen both in person and can let me know if the chevron design is noticeably bigger or different when compared side by side. I only make cards so the 4.25 x 5.75 would work, but maybe the 5 x 7 would give for more flexability???

Does anyone have any feedback or have another brand to suggest?

Thanks,
Tina

I haven't seen the Darice brand, but I own the Stampin' Up and will be buying the Darice as well - the Darice brand looks like it would work best on portrait-oriented cards, and the Stampin Up works best on landscape (if you're looking to emboss a full card front)

Thanks for the feedback - looks like I have other options to consider other than Darice. I hadn't even thought about the fact that some folders might be made for portrait vs. landscape oriented cards. Can't wait to get one of these folders!
