there is nothing a women cannot fix

given a bit of time and a lot of determination

Would you like to experiment with a design like this? You'll find a supply list below, including a link to the stencil I used from A Colorful Life Designs. Follow the link and use discount code ChrisFan10 to save 10% on your entire order! (Master Creator Bundles are excluded as they already have a 20% discount built in.)

Let’s get Started:

Card Base: 4.25 x 11, scored and folded at 5.5

Card Face: 4 x 5.5

A scrap of cardstock for the sentiment

Card Face:

  • I put the card face onto my Grip Mat and positioned the stencil.

  • I applied light pink ink on the top and bottom, allowing both edges to fade about two-thirds of the way down the card face.

  • I put the card face into my stamp positioner and added the bouquet using Memento ink.

  • I coloured the image with alcohol markers.


  • I put the scrap cardstock into the stamp positioner and stamped the sentiment a couple of times with Versamark Onyx.

  • I trimmed the sentiment to the desired size and added dimensional foam on the back.


  • I glued the card face to the card base, centering vertically.

  • I added the sentiment as shown.

Final Thoughts:

I have to admit, this sentiment makes me smirk just a bit.. I’m looking forward to sending this to a friend so that she can smirk too!

Supplies: (and links where possible)

I have listed which products I have used, and where they may be purchased. It's a huge marketplace and in most instances, there are multiple sources and many alternatives to choose from.
