In this video, I explain the different types of paper and cardstock you will find on the market, and what I recommend for using for each type of craft! I give you a quick walk through paper weights, whether they are acid free and the texture you may encounter! When stamping, it's important to think about texture and absorption to get the best impression - a higher-quality matt cardstock is better in this instance. As well as difference in pattern and texture, you can get cardstock with an inner core colour which is great for grunge and mixed media.
