Bouan Noue Christmas Card

posted in: Blog, Jeni 2

Hi,  can you believe that it is already November??!  In a couple months it will be 2018!  Anyway, I was playing with some new stamps by Concord & 9th and came up with this gorgeous Christmas card!


Turnabout Stamping

I placed the turnabout stamp from the Christmas Cheer stamp set in my Tim Holtz Stamp platform and stamped three turns with Versamark embossing ink onto white Neenah card.  Without removing my card from the jig, I poured on some super fine white embossing powder, tapped off the excess and heat set.  Then placed the card back into the stamp platform and stamped the fourth turn with Versamark too.  But I used Classic Gold embossing powder instead of white.  Tapping off the excess gold and heat set until all the embossing powder has turned shiny and has melted.Concord-9th-Christmas

Diecut Heart

This diecut heart was leftover from another card (blog post coming soon) that was stamped with the Plaid background with red ink onto red card.  I used this red heart as my colour inspiration and grabbed some red and pink Clean Colour Real Brush markers to colour in the white embossed areas.  All the colours I use are listed below with the supply list.


Sentiment & Finishing The Card

Bouan Noue is Guernsey-French for Merry Christmas.  I used the Perfectly Penned stamp set to stamp the letters to spell “Bouan Noue” onto white card and added “from all of us” underneath.  Trimming this into a small fishtail banner strip, then foam mounting the red heart onto my embossed background and also use foam to add the sentiment banner.


For the finishing touches, I add some White Blizzard Nuvo Glitter enamel drops and Classic Cherry enamel accents.  I think I may have overdone the enamel dots – especially at the bottom left side of the heart.
