Loonie Stampers Challenge #3

It is time for another Loonie Stampers Challenge! I am so excited to be working with a great group of Ladies!! In fact I am super excited to even be meeting one of them soon. Charlene and I will meeting as her and her DH are going on a VACA and will be passing through here. Hopefully sometime the 4 of us could get together and do some stamping together!!!
OK onto the challenge. this week it was my turn to select what we would be doing. When I did up the color map on my computer I thought it all looked nice together and then I actually sat down to make something and found I was more Challenged with this combo then I thought I would be. After some fiddling around this is what i came up with.

This is a 4x4 Chipboard card. I have made a few of them in the past and they are usually a hit. They are a bit different from the norm and are less likely to hit the trash.

I used the floral images from Spiral Bouquet with Lavender Moon & Summer Sunrise. Once I made the background paper, I cut the paper to 4x8.5 and glued the chipboard coasters (4x4) on each end of the paper, leaving half an inch in the middle to acct as the spine.

Next I took to strips of Lavender saddle stitched ribbon and glued then down the side of the spine and also on the back in the same spot. I tucked the ends around to the inside and glued them down. After that I added the Jumbo eyelets by punching a hole through with my cropadile and fed the ribbon through and glued it down.

Once that was done I lined the inside with Kraft (4x8.5) This time I only glued one side first so that I could press the middle down into the spine an then I glued the other side down. Just a note I used the Tombow Multi for this whole project, it works SUPER good for things like this.

Last but not least I stamped the Lavender Moon floral and cut it out, laying it on top with Dimensional stickers. Added the sentiment with dimensional stickers as well and that's all!!

I hope you have enjoyed this weeks LSC and please take the time visit my challenge Sistah's:
