Flower Patch Meets Kinda Eclectic

I was totally inspired by Nance Lempinen-Leedy, a fellow demonstrator, in her combination of Kinda Eclectic and the Starburst Framelits. She designed this little box for the display board at Convention. Isn't it darling?

I love how she got the idea to stamp and emboss the sunburst from Kinda Eclectic and cut it out with the Starburst Framelits. The added twist she used, though, is to cut between the lines of the stamp. Genius!
I applied this concept but paired it with a flower built with stamps from Flower Patch.

Mounting the round flower onto the square mattes works well because circles and squares together are aesthetically pleasing. The sentiment works to balance the square mattes on the rectangular card front.
Here is an angled shot of my card.

This close up shows the dimension achieved by using Dimensionals.

I have been using Fuse Fast adhesive lately, as an alternative to Sticky Strip. There is a learning curve to using this adhesive as it is not as easy to use as Snail Adhesive, until you know the trick! Check out this really good video by Patty Bennett, so you will feel comfortable using it, too!
