How to Use Glittered Cardstock as Layout Accents

Penny here to show you how I used Glittered Gold Cardstock from the CutCardStock Store to create fun accents for my little girl’s scrapbook layout.

You Make Me Smile Layout Featuring Glitter Cardstock

I started this layout by choosing my pattern paper. Since the colors of my photo were such muted pastel colors I didn’t want to overpower them with a lot of strong pattern paper colors. So I chose this pale pink pattern paper with the gold trim.

Next, I chose the Glittered Gold Cardstock that I wanted to use as my accent pieces. I chose gold to match the gold in the pattern paper trim and the gold on the colored sofa in the background of my photo.

This cardstock is just gorgeous! The glitter texture on it is fantastic, and it’s not too thick to use in most of your punches. This cardstock is also priced at a very affordable price, for this kind of quality cardstock.

You can find just about all of your cardstock and printing needs at the CutCardStock Store so be sure and check out their full inventory.

Photo frame cut out with my paper trimmer.

So using this cardstock and my paper trimmer, I cut out this photo frame accent piece. This is really easy to do and so affordable to do yourself.

My photo mounted inside my gold frame.

Then, I added my photo inside of my frame, it was a perfect fit.

Doily added to my pattern paper.

Since I wanted this layout to have a “feminine” feel to it, I added a doily to my layout prior to adding my photo. It is held in place with glue strips hidden behind the photo.

I also added foam tape to the underside of my photo to elevate it slightly off the page.

Then I started punching out the gold butterfly accents from the Glittered Gold Cardstock. I glued them in place in several spots on my layout.

Butterflies and title block

To give the page more gold accents, I added a gold butterfly and a square gold mounting block to the underside of my title.

Next, I added the pink bows and brads. I also added Madison’s name to the top of the layout. I would have normally used the gold cardstock for the letters as well, but I had loaned my die cut machine to a friend so I had to resort to alphabet stickers. Next, I added the tiny gold brads to the title block.

My finished layout

I hope you had fun following along today and the next time you need special accent pieces for your own layout don’t be afraid to make them yourself. It’s fun, and a money saver at the same time. Plus, you always get just the right color match for your layouts that way. Until next time, Happy Scrapping! Love Penny
