Ciao Bella Morning in Provence Birthday Card Tutorial of the Month May 2024

Hello, Friends!  It’s Wonderful Wednesday and this Ciao Bella Morning in Provence Birthday Card Tutorial of the Month is our project for this week.  I’ve never been to Provence, but working with these lovely papers is almost as good as being there.  Everything about this collection is feminine, shabby chic and full of peaceful, relaxing colors, patterns and images.  I like it so much that I’ve decided to use the collection in my September card kit for Button Farm Club.

Easier Than You Think

Are you familiar with that old saying: “Yard by yard life is hard, but inch by inch it’s a cinch.”?  The basic design here is very simple and straightforward. You will see that in the video tutorial.  It’s the embellishments and layers that take it to the next level.  

Lovely butterflies, flowers, beads and beautiful board from Reneabouquets add interesting details. We will add these elements one at a time in the video tutorial.  I think you’ll be pleasantly surprised to  learn that this card is easier to make than you might think. Yes, there is a lot going on in this card.  But none of it is hard to do.  

A Peek Inside

Birthdays offer lots of opportunity for capturing great memories with photographs.  So I decided to build a little photo folio inside this card.  This turns the card into a real keepsake that can be enjoyed for years to come.

And if there is a birthday, you have to have a few presents!  So I created a sweet little bookmark, magnet and journal card to tuck into the pretty pocket.

TIP:  Cut a panel of paper to fit the inside of your card.  Then trim a piece from the bottom to line the pocket face.  This allows you to enjoy the entire image, and makes an almost hidden pocket design.  Try it!
