I am new at making cards.  I have a template for the envelopes however I am not sure what kind of paper to make them out of.  I think that the card stock I made the actual cards out of would be a bit too thick.  And paper, like the kind you would print/copy on would be too thin?  I've looked at the craft store and I can't seem to find any in-between.  What kind do you all use?

I’ve been using linen paper for your ink jet or laser printer. It’s on the thinner side, however it folds and holds real well. It looks and feels professional!

Thank you all for your ideas.  I was watching my daughter wrap Christmas paper thinking to myself about how much paper she was wasting.  So I used her scraps for the Christmas cards!
