Cardstock Weight Craft Paper for Distressing, Sanding, Tearing, Antiquing and Inking
Core’dinations cardstock is a craft paper that you could use for scrapbooking, card making, collage, mixed media art, home décor projects, and paper crafts.
Core’dinations cardstock is different from most other cardstocks because the core of the paper is colored.
Some other cardstocks have a white core. Others have a core color that precisely matches the color on the outside of the cardstock. If you want to tear, sand or distress the cardstock you use for a particular project, Core’dinations cardstock is an outstanding choice; it is designed just for these purposes. Other cardstocks can be torn and sanded, but the resulting look is not as finished or elegant.
Core’dinations cardstock is available in a rainbow of colors and textures. The “Black Magic” collection features black cardstock with contrasting core colors. You’ll find a variety of amazing colors at the core, from earthy tonals to pastels to brights. The “Chocolate Box” collection features chocolate brown cardstock with various lovely, bright core colors. The “Vintage” collection features reto-inspired colors reminiscent of the 1950’s and 1960’s. The “Whitewash” collection also has a retro look and feel as well. Color assortments are available.
