A card stock paper is also called as pasteboard paper or covers stock paper, and is a very high quality paper. These papers are heavy in nature and may be coated or uncoated depending upon choice and thus the name cardstock paper.

It may contain colored textures that look rich on one side and may be smooth on the other side. Cards made from this type of paper can be used to make elegant decorative paper with the help of embossing tools.
