Default Special Paper Needed For Greeting Cards?

I've just got started with paper crafts. I've made a few little projects from tutorials from YouTube and it's been a blast! No one ever told me how addicting it is to sit down and craft. Sad that I've found out so late.

My current project is building this Crayon Popup Card with a template. I'm not the best at drawing or coming up with something creative. A lifetime in accounting will do that to you.

They never stated what kind of paper I should use? I'm sure I can use regular old printing paper but I'm worried that it'll be all flimsy and easily damaged before I give it to my grandchild.

What do you guys think they used?

Drawing paper tends to be thicker than standard printing paper and more stiff. There is also the option of using thin construction board paper for this as well. I am not sure if there is a name for it or not but it isn't as thick as the regular kind but should work nicely for this.
