kind of glazed off white
This paper is not what I expected from the picture. The shapes take on a kind of glossy look. Perhaps I misunderstood the discription. And most of this big schroll that is in the corner of the paper is blocked by the turned up piece showing the back of the paper. That schroll will force me to waste 1/4 of this paper. It would be nice for a layout where you could place a picture inside the schrolled frame like shape...but for card making, it's not too perfect.
