Vellum paper vs vellum cardstock
I see in the Idea Book and Catalog SU has both vellum paper and cardstock. What is the difference? I want to make the vellum wraps to go around a votive candle holder but I don't know what to use.

Vellum paper is thinner than the vellum cardstock. I use the vellum cardstock for printing on in my inkjet printer - the paper doesn't go through my printer but the carstock does. For votives - well, I've used both. It just depends upon your preference.

Vellum paper is pretty much see-through. Whereas the cardstock is heavier duty, almost opaque.

Pepperann- thanks for the "visual " explanation. I think the paper is what I need.

I just stamped a cover for a vase of silk flowers using white vellum paper from SU. It worked very well. (Allow extra time for inks to dry.) Good luck! :D

Mazzygirl...thanks for asking this question. Every answer here helped me know what I should be using the vellum for! :)

One other nice thing about vellum cardstock is that you can heat emboss on it! Pretty cool!
