Default Cardstock

What cardstock do you use? I use different kinds of coloured cardstock. Used to favour white but it get brown spots after sometime so I stopped using pure white. Sometimes textured cardstock is a welcome choice to add more variation.

Mostly I use either white or colored card stock; sometimes patterned paper. It depends on what I'm trying to do with each card. I didn't vote 'cause I couldn't figure out which category I fit in!

My card bases are made with Colored Cardstock. I mostly use White or Ivory Cardstock to stamp on. and then add pattern paper or other to finish my cards.

99% of my card bases are white unless I'm doing a dark card - then I use black. Its just easier and more economical. I buy a ream of white card stock, cut about 50 bases at a time and then I have them on hand.

I use mostly colored for the bases, but some of my cards are white or ivory. It just depends on my mood. I do add my own embossing more than using textured paper. I use that paper for panels or when I make embellishments.

I didn't answer the poll because I was going to mark all of them. If I am going to color in my images I use an off white cardstock.

I use colored, textured cardstock for my card bases 99% of the time. I just like the way it looks.

I don't know how to answer, because I use a variety. I use white or cream often, but I also use solid colored cardstock often.

I've started playing with using pale gray as an alternative to white & cream, but finding a good truly pale gray cardstock has been difficult.

Mostly white followed up by cream or ivory. I do a lot of cards to donate different places and for the troops so I have to watch the expenses.

I mainly use colored smooth cs for bases, it all depends on the design. Don't care for textured cs and prefer 80 lb weight.

There was no option for textured white, which is what I use most of the time , so I voted just white.

I'm probably 50/50 when it comes to my base. Sometimes it's white (or something close to white) the rest of the time it's colored depending on what I'm making. My all time favorite is Rustic White.

I marked three - white; purecolour with texture; pure colour without texture. Whatever mood or occasion I'm in or doing depends on the base. All that said, white is my 50% use.
I believe you can mark whatever you use.

Yeah, you can mark more than one box. I marked white and untextured colour.
