Default Where to buy white-core cardstock?

I sometimes like to sand portions of my cards to get a distressed look. This is easy to do with cardstock that has a white core. I went to a very large stamping/scrabooking store last week that had walls and walls of cardstock but when I asked about a white core I was told they had none! Is anyone else having a problem finding white-core cardstock? What are the best brands and where do you get it from.

Thanks!

DCWV has cardstock that is white-core. I bought some a while ago in a stack of bright colors from Jo-Ann's.

Close To My Heart sells only white core cardstock.
Our cardstock comes in single colors. 12X12 runs $9.50 per pack, 8.5X11 runs $7.95 per pack. Or you can get a family combo pack of 12X12 for $9.95. All packs have 24 sheets in them.

Enjoy distressing it when you do get some, its one of the greatest features of the white core!

Here's a link to a site that sells Lasting Impressions paper. www.onecraftymama.com
Their paper is made especially for use with stencils and is great. They have great colors and patterns that look good with stencils.

If you are looking for solid colors Memory Box Company has beautiful papers. They are made using soy-based ink and are very "earth" friendly. They also make the smaller 6x6 pads that have a white core as well. HTH's.

I concur!! Memory Box papers rock. They are very different than typical cardstock. I can't explain it but they are smooth and the colors are amazing. Because the solid papers are white on one side, using them to make cards is awesome because you can have a dark outside and a nice professional looking white inside to your card.

I know I'm off topic, but...

I was going to mention Lasting Impresisons. I don't think anything beats it. I have a ton of it. It's got the PRETTIEST shades, and coordinating patters to go with the solids, like stripes, polka dots, etc. And they also have brads and stuff that match. I emboss on it ALL THE TIME and love it.
