Birthday Card of the Month with Mintay Chocolate Kiss

January 2024 Birthday Card of the Month with Mintay Chocolate Kiss and Reneabouquets

Hello, Friends!  Today we’re going to create our January 2024 Birthday Card of the Month with Mintay Chocolate Kiss and some paper pretties from Reneabouquets.  Working with this scrumptious paper collection had me craving some sweet treats, let me tell you!

First, I had to decide what type of card to make.  After all, this is our very first Birthday Card of the Month tutorial.  It needs to set the tone.  Easel cards are probably my favorite fancy fold design. I never get tired of making them.  Then, I decided to tweak the basic easel card design to make it even more fun.

How?  Well, how about a bookmark pocket built into the cover of the card?  You’ll learn how to do this in the video tutorial below.

A Peek Inside

Stamped birthday sentiments from my stash,  fussy cut images, and flirty butterflies  helped dress up the card design inside and out!  The interior pocket acts as a stopper for the easel mechanism, but it also provides a lovely spot to tuck in some birthday treats!

One simply must place chocolate in a chocolate themed birthday card.  And if one is going to enjoy a bit of chocolate, it should be accompanied by a cuppa. Don’t you agree?  I also dressed up that sweet little tag with an itty bitty notecard and a surprise flap element on the back side.  All will be revealed in the video tutorial below.
