Christmas in July: Keyhole (with tutorial)

Welcome back to Lost Coast Portal to Creativity where Lost Coast Designs and Carmen's Veranda collide to bring you twice the inspiration and double the fun!


Hi everyone, it's Christmas here at the blog! :-D I'dd love to show you how I made this Christmas card. I love the (medium) Keyhole stamp so much, you can creatie wonderful ,look-throughs' with it! This is how I made this card:

Colour a piece of white cardstock wth Distress ink and water.( I used Speckled Egg and Salty Ocean) Stamp the keyhole, using black ink, onto the card and two times on masking paper.

Cut out the masks as shown here.

Cover the stamped keyhole on the card with the smallest mask and stamp some snowflakes (Large Snowflakes set) with the same Distress colours on the edges. Remove the mask.

Now cover the edges with the bigger mask, and stamp the Swinging gnome and the landscape (Cracked grass and sky) into the keyhole with black ink. Remove the mask.

Finishing the card: Change the small leaves into fir branches with a black marker. Colour the images with colour pencils. Make some shadows here and there with charcoal or ink and a q-tip). Use a yellow glitter pen on the small stars. Add a star sequin on the gnomes head. I used a text from ,Party words'. 

Have fun! If something is not clear, please ask! :-) Hope you join in!
