I do not know the weight of CTMH cardstock. It is my understanding that Stampin Up whisper white is 70 lb., while the colored cardstock is 80 lb.

Glenda you may be right about the 70 lb whisper white - I find it much thinner. Thanks

It is known for it's white core. I'd say it is the same thickness. I do enjoy ripping this paper to expose the white.

I love CTMH colors....but it is so flimsy! Seems even thinner than SU's whisper white. It doesn't say on the package.

I never never never used it as a card base as it can't "support" the
card.

Thanks gals, I was comparing the weight and price between Papertrey, Gina K, SU, & CTMH. It is shocking the difference. CTMH is the lightest and most costly of the four. Good to know.

I like Papertrey the best for card bases, but the cost of shipping is out of this world. The Gina K is also great for card bases and there shipping price is really good. If you would like a sample of each let me know Kathy and I can send them to you so that you can compare for yourself.

Love CTMH colors... but don't use it as a base for a card, just as accents or layers. PTI I save for my copics and use whisper white for card bases...
