Mat Photographs

Make photo mats around your pictures using a cardstock color to complement your designer paper packs.

Add Accents with Borders & Punches

Draw attention to your Border Maker Cartridge designs by adding accentuating cardstock! Use punches with your cardstock to create your own embellishments – they’ll layer perfectly with your designer papers!

Make a Background

Cardstock is perfect to use as a background for your layout or even a card or border base!

Use it for Journaling

Tell your story – journal your special memories on a backdrop of photo-safe cardstock! You can also cut strips of cardstock to use as journal lines.

Creating Shapes

Pair cardstock with our Custom Cutting System and make any shape perfectly! We currently offer patterns such as circles, ovals, rectangles, gemstones and jumbo hexagon.
