Tuesday Tutorial - Monstera Card Front

Hi Everybody,

The card today is another of those quick and easy ones to put together when time is of the essence. You could create lots of backgrounds and card fronts and store them away ready to be used when the occasion arises and then simply add the two parts and your done.
Spellbinders Supplies:
Other Supplies:

With the outer part of the Monstera Card Front die cut three pieces in white card  and use two of them to create the base.
With both parts together cut again in white twice and glue together for strength.
With the separate layer of white card spritz it with water and with the Crystal Colour of your choice  sprinkle the colour over the card. Blot of any excess that runs off and then dry with a heat tool ... or leave it to air dry depending on how patient you are !!
Once dry add the two glued together patterned pieces to the top with foam pads underneath in strategic places so that they cannot be seen from the front.
Brush over the leaves in the panel with a Clear Glitter pen to add some subtle sparkle.
Stamp and emboss the sentiment of your choice and add to the card front with foam.
Add to the bottom left of the card 
There you have a quick card ready to send ... vary the sentiment for other occasions

More tomorrow ...

Hugs xx
