Default Please school me on those darn stitched dies

I am falling in love with the stitched dies. Particularly the rectangle and squares for my cards. I see so many cards made with these and now I must have them

I just placed an order and got a bunch of stamp sets with their matching dies along with some stand alone dies. One of which was this one.... https://www.lawnfawn.com/products/st...ctangle-frames It's the stitched rectangle frames?


So what's the difference between the frames and regular stitched rectangle stackables? And what are 4-bar rectangle dies? To me they all basically look the same.

Frames.
The die cuts outside and inside and you end up with a piece that looks like a picture frame with a line of stitching on the frame.
In the picture here (your link) the blue plaid frame around the opening on the card is made with a stitched rectangle frame die.

Stackables.
The die cuts the outside of a rectangle with a line of stitching near the edges.
In the picture here the blue rectangle is cut from a stitched rectangle stackable.

4 Bar.
This is a card size, like A2 is a card size. 4 Bar cards are 3-1/2 by 4-7/8 inches, fit an envelope 3-5/8 by 5-1/8, and are the smallest mailable size of card. The dimensions have different proportions than the A2 so the die sets made for layering have to be different.

Thanks for adding the links. You could describe til the cows came home and my head would still be up in the clouds (I'm such a visual person). Now that I see which is which, I realize I bought the wrong ones LOL I'm definitely keeping them though and will just HAVE to make another purchase. Oh darn. Thanks again so much.
