Default Question about banner dies

I have long skinny nesting banner dies and short fat nesting banner dies but neither set has a die that is the right size to use to make banners that will fit a regular size card, about a third of the width of the card and about two thirds the length. Does anyone know a brand that would work? Thanks!

I have this steel rule die from Spellbinders - the pairs layer, and they're a great size for cards.

Does it have to be a full banner? Would something like this work: https://sunnystudiostamps.com/produc...ail-banner-die. Gives you the option of varying the width.

I was frustrated, too, about the proportions of banner dies out there, they seemed too wide. Instead of dies I use a WRMK banner punch board.

I have some banner dies from Taylored Expressions that are perfect for using on the front of a card, and the largest is about 2-3/4 inches wide. They're long so you can cut to the length you want.

I looked for the ones I have and she doesn't have them anymore, but she has stitched ones just like them, largest is the same width. I'm going to put those on my wishlist!
