According to the catalog, all card stock is 80 lbs. (pg. 155). An is safe for use in scrapbooks.

Whisper White/Very Vanilla, though, are lighter weight papers. They're also much smoother finished. Hang on, I can go check the weight on those...

ETA: OK, I guess I'm wrong, lol. The Product Guide does list it as 80lb. cover weight, just like the colored cardstock. It is a different type, though. As I said, it is smooth, and almost coated, and is not as sturdy as the colored cs. It's fantastic to stamp on and takes color like a dream. I usually use it as a layer rather than a base for a card.

I can't believe Whisper White is the same weight. It's just so different. I do love it but I wish they had a heavier white option also.

On another thread I learned that the difference in stiffness with WW is not in it's weight, but that the colours added actually stiffens the cardstock.
