Question Help from someone who owns Shimmery White!

I have not yet ordered this card stock and I am making my Christmas cards. I was wondering....if I layer over the shimmery white with vellum paper, will I notice a difference or should I stick with just white? I've read that everyone loves this paper but since it is so pricy, I don't want to waste it if no one will be able to tell. By the way, the white will be totally covered with the vellum.

Thanks for your help!

If you are using SU vellum cardstock, you would not be able to see the shimmer through it. I don't have anything thinner to check for you.

I just placed a piece of vellum paper over the shimmery, and I couldn't see the shimmer at all. Sorry.

Don't be sorry that is exactly what I needed to know! I will just save buying that for another time.

Thanks

Definitely get it sometime though! I put it off for ages, but finally bit the bullet and I'm totally addicted!

there are shimmery white envelopes to match the shimmerry white paper too- I've used this combo for my Christmas cards and they look great together!

The shimmery white is a wonderful cardstock on its own and you wouldn't want to lose the effect by covering with vellum. Shimmery envelopes would be perfect for mailing your cards, however!

If you are interested, I got mine from paper zone, and got 50 sheets of it to make wedding announcements with, same as SU shimmer white.
Here is the link. I see it is on sale now..better price then I paid, and wow, look at the price of SU shimmer per sheet, vs. this! I have compared both, they are one in the same.
