Tips for Beginners #2

I thought that I would continue with the paper theme in my tips for beginners.  So let's start with the suitable weight of paper to use.  You'll agree with me that paper is vitally important to the finish of your card.  For the folded card I use heavy weight card between 200 and 300 grams and for layering (sometimes called matting) you can use thinner card or paper from about 120g up.  Remember that the quality of your cardstock is very important as better quality makes the finished card look more professional.
