Stampin' Up! Gorgeous Grunge meets Butterfly KISS

Stampin' Up! set "Gorgeous Grunge" has an array of splatters that are just purrrfect to set of the back ground of any card.  Today's post showcases one of the KISS (Keep It Simple Sweetheart) catalogue launch projects using one of my favourite dies, the butterfly. To highlight the background, we used Gorgeous Grunge in coordinating colours to match the use of card stock and the Designer Series Paper (DSP) backing of the butterflies.

I created the card by choosing a base card, (above Delightful Daffodil) cutting a Whisper White card front, 1/8 to 1/4 inch smaller than the base card front and using the detailed small butterfly thinlit die to cut out two windows for the detailed butterflies to sit in.
I backed the windows with coordinating DSP, cut in a long rectangular strip.
I then cut out one detailed butterfly in Basic Black and a solid small butterfly in Delightful Daffodil.
I mounted the detailed black butterfly on its cut out of Delightful Daffodil.
I stamped the Whisper White card diagonally with the splatters from Gorgeous Grunge in Basic Black.
I mounted the three detailed butterflies with glue dots - white, black, white, the white ones nesting in their windows, with glue dots.
I stamped the sentiment and adhered  the completed card face onto the base card

I want to create these in a rainbow of butterfly colours, I think this is so cute and thanks to Pinterest I was able to case the layout.

Hope you are having a purrrfectly crafty good day!

Yours in paper craft,
