Prima Farm Sweet Farm Horse Lovers Birthday Card Tutorial for Make & Take Tuesday

Hello, Friends!  This Horse Lovers Birthday Card Tutorial is my feature for this week’s Make & Take Tuesday.  It took a series of small miracles and a truckload of determination to get this episode put together for  you!  Making the card was the easy part!  But getting the video edited was not!  My computer updated last Thursday, and I lost my sound card.  After spending 3 days trying to fix the problem, updating drivers, running Malware programs and reading countless “how to fix the sound on your computer” articles, I admitted defeat.

Yes, I had to purchase a new computer (laptop). Which should not be a big deal, right?  You just go to the store, pick out a computer, put it in your cart and come home.

Sadly, no.

Dale and I searched and searched to find a laptop that would do what I needed it to do and was also in stock.  Supply chain issues are no joke.  But I found one that will do the job…even if it is not perfect.  After getting it all set up, I had to find a new video editing program, because the one I know like the back of my hand, of course, does not work on the new model.

Go ahead and laugh.  I finally did, and it did me good.  So, if this video tutorial is not quite up to my normal standards, be kind.  I’m still learning the program.

Now, on with today’s project!  Hooray!

Horse Loving 10 Year Old Granddaughter

Prima Farm Sweet Farm Easel Card Tutorial by Kathy Clement Reneabouquets Beautiful Board Photo 01

Our sweet Julia turns 10 this month.  Do you remember being horse crazy when you were that age?  I was!  So I wanted to make her a horse themed birthday card that she could display on her dresser.  Easel cards are my “go to” fancy fold when I want to make a card that can easily be displayed.  In the tutorial, you’ll learn how to put the various layers together and add the embellishments.

TIP: Make a smaller focal image pop off the page by adding a frame.  This circular frame from Reneabouquets does the job beautifully.  Plus, I always appreciate the addition of a circular element on a square card.  It makes it more inviting and softens all the hard edges.

A Peek Inside

The inside is super simple.  Add a little side pocket for the bookmark/tag element and leave room to add a blank sentiment panel.  I  kind of hate to cover up the cute chipmunks, so I might add the sentiment on the back side of the card instead.

Now go make something beautiful!

    Oh my gosh Kathy. Thank you for conquering technology. All of those hoops are daunting. Even learning a new editing program. Gah!!! This looks as flawless as all of your work

    Another heirloom for the family album to be enjoyed over the future generations. I am sure your Granddaughter will be in heaven when she sees this lovely card. Have you taken her to Chincoteague Island, VA, for the Spring Pony Roundup? I’ll bet she would love it and it is a nice destination for the family too…. Sorry to hear about your computer/software journey. They can indeed be pesky.

    Oh Kathy dear …so sorry you’ve had all those computer problems …what a trooper you are! Thanks so much for this gorgeous horse card! Julie is gonna luv it! And so do I! Always had that dream of owning a horse growing up too! And we moved to the country 33 years ago and we have mules! Don’t laugh …me and my Frankie have had some really great trail rides thru Indiana! In her younger years she was a little onery and probably came from a Tennessee Walker, but she was beautiful! …but patience had paid off and now she rides our grandchildren around the yard, not me anymore. Welllll, I’ve had that Prima paper collection in my cart several times and taken it back out …I just better get them or I’m gonna be so mad at myself! Big hugs, Suzy Q

    Your Granddaughter will absolutely love this card. I too loved horses & have taken riding lessons. You couldn’t get me off a horse. My riding days are over, but not my love for horses. Be well, be safe & TYFS

    Computers are great till they are not. Glad all is well despite that. I had horses growing up, it was pure joy! Love those beasts, especially fond of their muzzle, how soft like velvet and their breath. Reminds me of a huge puppy! Enjoy your Tuesday. We are getting rain rain rain and more rain.

    Thanks for posting Make and Take Tuesday after all the computer issues! What a great card idea for a horse lover. Your Granddaughter will love it!! Can I ask what kind of liquid adhesive you use-seems like I always end up with a mess and use double sided tape instead. Thanks again
