Good Morning:

I see where several of you recommended Staples Photo Matte Supreme paper for photo cards. What type/kind of card stock would you recommend for me to use in making cards and matting for the cards described in the February 21, 2013, blog by Lei?

Thanks for any recommendations!

Barbara

Hmmmm.. I'm sorry I don't know the answer to your question, but April is great at card/printing information. And, it just so happens there's a "Creative Cards Chat" at 8pm ET tonight. If you can make it, you can ask away.
Otherwise, I'm certain someone else will come along here with an answer.

For plain white (that I'm not going to print except for text) I'd just get a ream of cardstock at the office supply store. I used to have my favorites, but I haven't bought any for a while. I'll have to check them out the next time I'm in the store.

I know that Lei likes to use Watercolor paper for her cards. I've tried it a few times and liked the results.

Thank you for the pointers. I went to Staples and Michaels and loaded up with various papers and envelopes. Now I'm waiting for the big, creative idea to hit me!
