When I watch YouTube videos about hybrid projects done by crafters in the UK or Australia or New Zealand, I hear the term "card."  I had assumed it's the same as what we call cardstock in the US.  Now I'm wondering if it's a heavier weight?  I've been playing around with hybrid albums and journals.

 

Thanks!

Hi Gayle, I don't know if this will help but I'm in NZ and when I say card I mean a greeting card and when I talk about card stock  I mean the cardboard that is used to make a card or a layout. If I heard someone say I'm using 160msg card I would find that unusual. Its usually card stock, cardboard or paper. Thats what I'm aware of but I'm not that sure. HTH

Hi Gayle,  Being an Australian,   I would assume when they use the term "card"  it is the cardstock used for cardmaking and possibly could be pre-scored cardstock ready for making a greeting card.  I have been a cardmaker since 1992 and back in the early days I would refer to what I used for cardmaking as "card". It was when I started scrapbooking ( real not digital ) that I started to refer to the Bazill cardstock I was using as "cardstock".

If you aren't sure, leave a comment on the youtube video and ask them. If it's a newer video, they usually respond quickly. Glad to hear you have the hybrid bug!

Thanks for the responses! Carla, I've had the hybrid bug longer than I've done scrapbooking - I started with hybrid cards.
