I wanted to use these diamond painting refrigerator magnets on a card. I thought it would be really cute and a great way to gift diamond painting magnets.
The magnets came from GBFKE.COM

After I added the diamonds to the magnets, they were ready to go on a card. I thought it would be fun to invite a girlfriend to lunch with this card…I have an old stamp from Hampton Arts that says “Let’s do Lunch,” I was surprised to find the same stamp on ebay in case one of you is interested.

I used a piece of yellow cardstock cut to to layer the front 3 1/4″ wide x 8 1/4″ tall
The red card base was cut to 8 1/2″ tall x 7″ wide, scored at 3 1/2″ on the 7″ length.
I used a regular business sized envelope that you’d mail bills in for this card.
I laid the two magnets on the yellow cardstock so I’d know where to put the sentiment, then once I knew where they needed to go, took an Xacto knife (craft knife) and cut a slit about 3 1/2″ from the bottom of the yellow card stock that was about 1 1/4″ long–it needs to be long enough to allow the ribbon ends to be pushed through the slit.
I took two ribbons, about 8″ long each, one red organza ribbon and one yellow grosgrain ribbon, and sprayed water on the red ribbon and ran it over my shirt and my hand to straighten it. You can also use a hair straightener to take any wrinkles out of ribbon. I use water because it’s fast and easy.
I put tear tape on the back of the yellow cardstock near the top to adhere the red ribbon….then laid the yellow ribbon in the center of the red ribbon and laid a piece of tear tape on the red ribbon to adhere the yellow ribbon. Then I wrapped the long ends of the ribbon over the top of the yellow cardstock and down the center to the slit I’d cut with the Xacto knife. I put tear tape under the ribbons to hold them in place and between the yellow and red ribbon to keep the yellow ribbon in the center of the red ribbon, and then pushed them through the slit and onto the back of the cardstock. I put tear tape under them on the back of the cardstock to hold them down.
I then stamped “Let’s Do Lunch” on the front of the yellow cardstock near the bottom with Gina K’s Amalgam Black Ink. The stamp doesn’t do a great job of stamping even though I’ve tried it repeatedly, even laid the stamp face up and putting the cardstock on top and rubbing it with my hand to get a good image, and that didn’t work. I stamped it normally then took a water based black marker and colored in where the stamping skipped, and then put clear Ranger embossing powder on it and heat set it.
I added tear tape to the back of the yellow cardstock and adhered it to the red base, then used Removable Glue Dots (temporary) to adhere the two magnets…This should allow the recipient to remove the magnets. I laid another piece of yellow cardstock cut to 8 1/4″ x 3 1/4″ wide to the inside of the card.
I decorated the business size envelope with two peg stamps..

I inked them with Distress Oxide inks:
Brushed Corduroy for the cones
Picked Raspberry for the scoop
Antique Linen for the soft serve
While the ink was still wet, I used a damp paint brush and moved the ink around to make the image look like it’s completely colored. I stamped them ice cream cones all over the flap of the envelope and three on the bottom front right corner of the envelope to make the envelope look frisky as well.
