Default 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!

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!
