Card scrapers cut.
Sandpaper abrades (scratches).

I have about forty years experience with card scrapers and/or other types of scrapers.
I’ve added card scrapers to my classes on wood finishing.
I teach how to obtain and use three different types of card scraper edge preparations.
Nothing beats a well turned burr.

Sometimes card scrapers and planes leave too smooth a surface for some kinds of finishes, especially stains.
That’s when I’ll use a little sandpaper to tone down the surface so it will properly take a stain.
