When deciding what color palette I wanted for a family tree album, this paper, and the paper pack it came in, was what I wanted. It has a very elegant antiqueness to it. It is slightly distressed along the edges that gives it that antique feeling. It is also double sided in the paper pack that I bought, and the reverse side it beautiful and coordinates with the floral on the front.
While I love this paper and its subtle overlays, it's a bit too muted for most of my greeting cards. However, it would be lovely for scrapbooking with memorabilia layered on top. It has a real historic look and does remind me of faded, well-loved wallpaper in a Victorian home or that of a fondly remembered grandparent or auntie.
