Hi All! I'm headed on a Disney Cruise at the end of June and I'm making door magnets for my stateroom door. I have been to every craft store in my area, and on as many sites as I can think of, but I'm unable to find any skin toned cardstock. Back in the day, I used Bazzill - (apricot, just peachy, adobe, etc.). I can't find anything like that anywhere. I just purchased "Prima - Julie Nutting - Mixed Media Doll - Skin Tone A4 Paper Pad - Buff" from this site because I didn't realize there were words all over the papers.

The decorations that I'm creating are 12 - 24" tall, so coloring with markers or pencils really isn't a great option. Most of my paper is Bazzill, so the textured cardstock would be my first choice, but at this point, I can't be too picky. I tried the manilla folders, but they seem too light - especially for Lilo, Tiana, and Jasmine.

Does anyone have any suggestions?

I appreciate your help!

Wendy

I did a search of some of my favorite Bazzill colors and a LOT are discontinued. I found two that might work for skin tones.

Thank you, Cindy! I’ll have to give those a try.

I can’t believe it’s so hard to find those colors now! Where’s the love for the paper piecing people?!?

I have always reached for AC papers for my skin tones. They do come textured. Their neutral pack may be what you are wanting.

For lighter toned, here's a Bazzill Basics in textured Quicksand:
Or Pale Rose: Bazzill Basics - 12 x 12 Heavyweight Cardstock - Card Shoppe - Pale Rose
Or light/med MME neutrals: My Colors Cardstock - My Minds Eye - 12 x 12 Classic Cardstock Pack - Smooth Finish - Neutral

For mid tones I also like the textured Almond Cream: https://www.scrapbook.com/store/bb-t8-815.html
Or the MME smooth neutrals package: My Colors Cardstock - My Minds Eye - 12 x 12 Classic Cardstock Pack - Smooth Finish - Neutral

For darker tones I like the textured Bazzill Basics Cinnamon Stick:

Or one darker tone from the other neutral package.

Good luck with your project!

Thank you for your advice! I tried to make some Disney Princesses with paper that I had. . . It didn’t go well.

I’ll try again when my order arrives next week!

What if your Disney Princess gets a sunburn? Your paper will be the wrong color.
