Hi everyone! Today, I’m sharing two quick cards I created for my little cousin’s graduation (one from high school and one from middle school) featuring various crafty items in my stash. I love mixing and matching sets to achieve the look you want. Plus there’s a SALE currently for Trinity (the ballon layer stencil is from them) — see below for SALE code.
All my supplies for creating this card will be listed down below (with multiple sources when available) for your curiosity and convenience. Affiliate links used when possible.
I used the Trinity Stamps’ Slimline Layered Balloons stencil for my main background. It’s a freaking amazing stencil that I haven’t pulled out enough! There’s two layers to this stencil along with the masks, which have the etchings so it’s really easy to line up! I used a variety of Ink on 3’s Atelier Inks and used two colors to blend for each balloon, leaving some white space to create a highlight. Next, I took the Altenew Bold Alphabet dies to cut through the main panel I just created. It’s scary but I wanted a subtle sentiment that didn’t take too much away from the amazing background I just created.
To add a little bit more to these two cards, I grabbed the Pretty Pink Posh Congrats Grad stamp set and stamped the grad cap along with the diploma using Memento Tuxedo Black Ink. Then I colored them up using copic markers. Finishing off the card, I found some star glitter and carefully glued them to fill up the white space. Aren’t these such bright and vibrant cards?!
The sales for Trinity aren’t very often, so definitely take advantage of the sale while you can.
Thanks for stopping by! Happy Crafting!
