Abstract Beauty Corner Tuck Card - Kylie's Winners Blog Hop

 Hi Everyone,

Today I am taking part in a Blog Hop with the Top Ten Winners from Kylie's International Gallery Highlights for February and the lovely Kylie herself. I'm so grateful to all of you who voted for me, thank you so much. I've made a Corner Tuck Fun Fold card with the lovely Abstract Beauty dsp and sentiments from the Dahlia Days stamp set. Let me show you how I made it.


1 piece of melon mambo card stock 4 1/4" x 8 1/4", 2 pieces of 3" x 3", 1 piece of 2 7/8" x 2 7/8", scraps for the sentiment
1 piece of basic white 2 5/8" x 2 5/8", scrap for the sentiment
Scraps of gold foil for the leaves
1 piece of dsp 4" x 5 1/2", 1 piece 4" x 2 1/4"
1 piece of contrasting dsp 4" x 2 1/4", 1 piece 2 3/4" x 2 3/4"
Dahlia Days stamp set
Double Oval Punch
Bough Punch
Iridescent rhinestones
Night of Navy ink
Checks & Dots Embossing Folders
Stampin' Cut & Emboss Machine
Simply Scored
Bone Folder
Multipurpose adhesive


On the long side score the melon mambo card at 5 3/4" and fold and burnish for the card base.

Add the largest dsp layer to the inside of the card.

Run one of the 3" pieces of melon mambo card through the machine in the Dots Embossing Folder and then cut in half on the diagonal to give the triangular piece for the tuck.

Add mini dimensionals around the outer edges of the triangle on the underside and then carefully add to the top right hand corner of the card.

Add the remaining dsp layers to the rest of the main card. 

Stamp a sentiment on the remaining white square and layer up on the 2 7/8" square of melon mambo - this is for the inside of the card.

Add the last dsp piece to the remaining 3" and add to the card front making sure you only add glue to the left hand side, make sure it's central and that the top right corner will tuck underneath the corner tuck spot.

Add the inside sentiment layer directly underneath this one so that it can't be seen when the card is closed.

Stamp a sentiment for the front and punch out with the scalloped oval and layer it up on two melon mambo ovals (you have to overlap them so that show equally above and below the white one - see the picture.  Add this to the centre of the square panel on the front.

Punch out some leaves in gold foil and them tuck them around the sentiment.

Add some rhinestones and the card is complete. I hope that you like it.
