Where do you get your colored card stock?

Good question, Nathania. Colored cardstock is available at most office supply stores, such as Staples, Office Depot, and others. Also, stores like Walmart and Target carry colored cardstock near where they have printer paper, although they tend to have a more limited selection of colors. It can also be ordered online through places like Amazon and Rainbow Resource.

I hope this helps you find it.
