Default Cardstock to match Distress Ink Vintage Photo

I am looking for a good quality cardstock to match Vintage Photo Distress Ink. I would prefer the cardstock to be a bit darker, but not as dark as Chocolate Chip. I also would like it to be a reddish brown, like Vintage Photo. Anybody have any suggestions? I have looked in my local stores, but nothing I really like there. Thanks!

I find that ink hard to match because of the red tint. I don't tend to use it as much because of it or I layer it with other distressed inks so it isn't as red if that makes sense. Not sure what you are using it on, if that will work or not.

I can't speak from experience as I usually try to 'coordinate' rather than match, and I tend to blend my distress inks a lot like the previous poster.

However, a little Google action turned up Tan Leather Pure Luxury as a possibility according to the Gina K website, and there is a Tim Holtz Distress collectionby coredinations.com you can find here. They claim to be a pretty exact match, but of course it looks like you can only get them in a stack, with one piece per color. :/

Good luck!
