Default SU cardstock vs. Bazzill cardstock?

Just wondering if you wise ones would know if any of the Bazzill cardstock colors ever come close to a SU cardstock color?

What I mean is, I'm in the middle of making Christmas cards and ran out of Real Red cardstock. Instead of placing an order and having to wait for it to come in, I'm wondering if I could just pop into Michaels and grab a few pieces of Bazzill cardstock to finish off some cards? How close do you think the ink color would match the Bazzill cardstock (on any of the Bazzill cardstock?)?

I know there was a color list somewhere (on here I think) that someone posted where they listed which Bazzill cardstock to use when making Disney related stuff, so the color would match each character. Just thinking there might be a list somewhere that matched up any Bazzill cardstock that closely matched any Stampin Up cardstock.

Thanks!!!

well... I don't know about many or a list, but real red might be one that COULD match, IF M's has that color. I would take a piece in to the store and try a match up

I would be willing to bet that Bazzill Does have a red that matched real red, but the catch is if Michael's has it

Also remember that your recipients aren't as picky as you are. As long as you don't put both brands on one card, with a true red like that I bet you will be fine.
