Retro Sketches 105 Hello Speech Bubble Card

Quick card from the weekend for this week's Retro Sketch:

I originally wanted the gold at the bottom to be painted, but then I realized I didn't have gold acrylic paint on hand, so I used gold glitter instead. Scrappy Tape (which is a cheaper alternative to Scor-Tape) works pretty well for keeping glitter adhered. The base patterned paper is Teresa Collins > Tell Your Story > Tickets (the B side with the grid, which is all I've used so far and I think I should get more at the rate that I'm using it . . .). I cut out one of the speech bubble pairs from Carta Bella > Hello Again > Chit Chat patterned paper and stamped with "hello" since the speech bubbles were blank.


  1. I LOVE the glitter. So the glitter isn't really messy with that tape? I love the look of this technique but am so afraid to try it because I hate having glitter fall off my card. Love how you used the speech bubbles on this and cut out the end of the card for the banner.

  2. This is very pretty!! I love the glittery gold bottom!!
