Default White Core Cardstock for bases

Boy I am just full of questions today! LOL
Quite a few people I know have used White Core Cardstock as their base for cards they make. The problem being that when they fold the card, the folded edge cracks and the white core shows through. Not very becoming on say a dark blue card. Or any color card for that matter. We had debated which way to fold the stock after scoring but it didn't seem to make a difference with white core stock if the mountian of the score is inside or outside because as soon as you use your bone folder to crease that score it cracks (if it hadn't already cracked as soon as you folded the card in half after scoring). Mountian fold, valley fold doesn't matter. Are you not suppose to use White Core Cardstock for bases? Also if used for diecutting all edges now have exposed white. Not super appealing either. Is this paper only suppose to be used for sanded techniques UHGGGGG........

I use white core for card bases and if the white is a problem after scorring I color with a marker to match. I normally color the white regardless if I use it for a base or just a panel.

It's "supposed" to be used for whatever you like.

I don't use white core cardstock for all of the reasons you have listed. It has a particular distressed look to it, which some people like, but it's not my thing. But it's not wrong to use it if you like the aesthetic.

I actually didn't buy the white core for the aesthetic look, the brand is Die Cuts with a View, a decent weight for a base and only $1.00 for 25 sheets and at that price, I will make it work for me, otherwise I wouldn't have chosen white core.
