Outhouse Santa card

My dad has an outhouse at his cottage on Lake Gogebic which he decorates with outhouse humor. One of the things he has is a picture of Santa crashing into the outhouse, and Santa yelling. "Dam it Rudolph, I said the Schmitt house!" I cleaned up the language a little, but this is my tribute to my dad.

I used the outhouse from Campout cut at 3 1/2 inches and the Santa and reindeer are from Holly Jolly cut at 2 inches. The star paper is by ANW Crestwood (from Joann's) The other things were just made from scraps. The snow is accented with white liquid applique. The greeting inside was computer generated. The card is about 5" x 6 1/2 ". Thanks for visiting!


  1. I have seen that cartoon before.
    I think my Sweetheart brought it home from work.
    But your card is to cute.
    I love it.
    If my Sweetheart was here he would have me making this for the guys he worked with :-)

  2. Versions of this card have been around for a long time. I remember first seeing it when I was a teenager. (I won't say how long ago that was, but suffice it to say it was a while ago. Ha, ha.) Glad you liked my version.
