Default Paper on the inside of cards -- What kind?

I just finished reading through a thread about putting a lining on the inside of cards for printing a sentiment or handwriting a message. Can someone please tell me exactly what kind of paper you use for this? Is it SU cardstock? Something else? Specific brands and what store you purchased it at would be very appreciated.

Thanks!

debjc.......For the liner inside my cards that I print my sentiment on, I use either silk, linen or laid type paper in either off white, natural or cream color. You can get any of these types of paper in a good stationary store. I use a #24 weight.

The thread you're talking about had responses of all kinds of paper people use from quite a number of sources.

I just use a high-quality white printer paper.

I usually like to use dark cardstock for the card but then the stamped sentiment inside doesn't show up. I sometime use designer paper that coordinates with the front and tear a "patch" large enough to stamp my sentiment and glue inside the card.

One more question: For those of you who use a liner, does it cover the entire inside, or is there some sort of border made by the outside cardstock?

I put a piece of white or natural (whichever matches the front best) inside. I use SU's and their white and natural are smooth and I think look nice. I cut this piece to be a little smaller so there is usually 1/4 inch of the darker cardstock showing around it. Then to make it look more elegant, I use a corner punch to scallop the 4 corners of the white or natural, or sometimes just two opposing corners. I usually don't stamp messages on the inside, I prefer to hand write the message. I usually write out my message before taping the cardstock down in case I screw up with my writing.

I really like to use parchment paper for the inside. I usually use the cream-antiquey looking type although it does come in colors, too. I'll either cut it to size and adhere it to the inside of the card or sometimes I make it large enough to cover both sides and add a ribbon along the middle to attach it. Makes it look kind of elegant.

I just use the packs of "cheapo" white cardstock at M's that is about $4 before coupon. It is not nice or heavy enough for cards, but it works perfectly for "centers"! I always cut mine so there is a 1/4 inch edge showing of the card itself (4 x 5 1/4, etc.). HTH!

I use bright white inkjet paper (24#) or parchment paper (also 24#) for the inside of my cards, and the deciding factor is color - does white or cream coordinate better.

I cut the inside piece to be smaller than the actual card - usually 1/2 inch smaller, so I have a 1/4 inch border of cardstock showing around it when I mount it. And I sponge the edges or stamp around the edges with another color from the front of the card.

Default sentiments inside cards

Hi, slightly off the thread, but do U put a poem inside your cards - and if so how? or do U just put the "happy" whatever inside with nothing on the outside? Thanks, Valda
