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.

Prima Farm Sweet Farm Card Folio Tutorial for Make & Take Tuesday

Hello, Friends!  It’s Make & Take Tuesday and we’re going to create something pretty with Prima’s Farm Sweet Farm Collection.  I have plans to create a Button Farm Club card kit with this collection in June, but I couldn’t wait that long to play with these lovely papers.  Make & Take Tuesday is the perfect time to introduce you to them.  So let’s go down to the farm this morning and see if the flowers are blooming.  The sun is shining brightly, and heard a rumor that Spring is coming, and the sheep are in the meadow.   Shall we?

The Shepherdess and Her Sheep

What inspires a card design?  It’s always fascinating to me when a small element leads the way to a larger design.  In the case of this card, this precious little Bliss B. Darling Beautiful Board from Reneabouquets fired my imagination.  She made me think of an old fashioned shepherdess.  So I paired her up with the sheep ephemera from Farm Sweet Farm.  The heat embossed Peacock Clock tells us it’s time for Spring.  A lace border amps up the shabby chic vibe.

A Peek Inside

Add a flap page to the top of the folio for photos, notes or quotes.

TIP: Add Journal cards ( 3×4 and 4×6) as layering elements and tuck ins for quick and easy card design.

TIP: Break out your envelope punch board, and create a little sachet envelope for the box pocket.  Tuck in a tea bag and chocolate treat.  Then tie  a vintage demitasse spoon to the cover with pretty ribbon.

Thank you all so much for all the sweet anniversary wishes!  We had a lovely day together!  Then our daughter spent the weekend with us, which was delightful.  She was our private chef on Saturday night, preparing us a sumptuous feast to help us celebrate 46 years as man and wife.  We are truly blessed, and truly thankful!
