I love this paper. Beware, though, it is very heavy...probably at least 110 pound. It goes so well with everything Christmas. Happy, too, that Bazzill makes this in 8.5" x 11". A great purchase. Can't beat Scrapbook.com's price either.
This paper is the perfect shade of red for Christmas card bases. It is not burgundy at all as the color sample here looks to me, but is a very deep dark red. No matter what other shades of Card Shoppe card stock I use for Christmas cards, I always keep coming back to this color. The Card Shoppe card stock is a very heavy weight for card bases and comes in lots of beautiful colors, but peppermint is the one I have used the most.
