Default Looking for Hammered Cardstock

In a recent post on her wonderful blog, Claire Brennan from Waltzingmouse showed an absolutely gorgeous card that used paper she referred to as "hammered cream card(stock) from Papermill UK."

http://waltzingmouse.blogspot.com/20...altz-time.html

Has anyone here on SCS bought any of this luscious-looking cardstock from a US supplier? I did see that it can be purchased from Papermill UK on e-bay, but I'd rather avoid having paper sent from abroad and be more likely to get dinged and bashed.

Thanks for any info you might have!

It looks a bit like watercolor paper. You could always mist heavy cardstock with water and then hammer it yourself.

not to sound weird or anything, but if the effect is a hammered look, a few dings might not hurt it so bad......you could call it distressed, or shabby chic. And IMHO, I would much ratherr buy US.....our companies need the money more than overseas.

I appreciate these suggestions, but I'm more inclined to see if there's some available to buy. I'm not too adept with the DIY approach -- except for cards!

You could do a further search for the product name, also

Thanks Carolyn, I had seen this in my initial search. They don't offer a cream color, which is what I would prefer, but if I can't find anything else, I may give them a try.

I've purchased it from the UK a while back- and as hard as I tried - I was unable to find in North America. It is pretty heavy stuff - mine arrived a - okay.

I might suggest purchasing in the folded cardstock size that you want. It is so thick that I've never been able to create a crease in my hammered cardstock without crushing up the crease. It's beautiful card stock though -no doubt about it!

IRL it's much different than watercolour paper. Much thicker and lighter - kind of air filled - if that makes sense!
