This is lovely, high quality paper. Because there is such variety in weight (I really wish there were a uniform system for noting the wide but often subtle variations in the thickness and feel of paper) I'll compare it to Graphic 45, the high-water mark for quality paper. This is not quite as stiff/heavy as G-45 card-stock, but it's definitely thicker than paper. A few of the pattern repeats are a little large for cards. Again, there is such a subjective range in tastes and I tend to not like glitter or embellishments on the paper and there are a few here but pretty tasteful ones. The least appealing designs are the page of tags (again, just my taste) which seem a bit garish, but the sprigged flower pages are gorgeous. Very pleased with this purchase; a slew of baby girls have been born to fellow teachers and I plan on making them each a baby book.
The "gold" detail in the picture is really a flat almost brassy color, most of the pictures are post card sized except for the 2-8"x10" ones. They are printed on a heavy card stock. Very, very plain in design, unless this is your design plan or want to take time to embellish the frame or decorative mat then not worth the price.-will be returning.
