Santa at the Ranch Card

Hi, Connie here to share a fun and unique card project. Who combines Santa with a ranch theme on a card? Me! LOL! I will also show how the 3D Foam Strips can help in those hard-to-reach areas to create this wonderful holiday card!

The Thought Behind the Santa at the Ranch Card

To use the stamps that I had picked out I would need to build a scene. Then the elements would need to be stamped and colored. Last decide on the layout of the card and which elements will need to be trimmed out. I cut the cow, star, presents, scarf and suitcase out. The trees and deer were stamped on the card front after landscape was penciled in. I used Distress Oxide for the coloring and Archival for the card front.

Assembling the card

  • 1. Pencil in a line to separate the sky from the snow. Stamp in trees. Adhere the small gifts under the tree using the Dual Tip Glue Pen.
    2. Using the 3D Foam Squares White Mix to adhere the Santa cow to the card front. On the very end of the cows tail is a trimmed down piece of the 3D Foam Strips. Just the perfect size!
    3. Next adhere the Santa hat over the cow horns and the suitcase with 3D Foam Strips.
    4. The sentiment is embossed and adhered in the middle of the cow using the 3D Foam Strips.
