Triangle Corner Pop-Up Card with Brutus Monroe GDT part 2!

Hello friends!!  I’m SO excited to share another project with you using some awesome products from Brutus Monroe!


If you remember at the beginning of June with THIS POST I announced being a June guest designer and well…things fell apart health wise as you know and I was completely heart broke about giving up my time in my “happy craft space”.  Of course they are all awesome people over at Brutus Monroe and they were happy to pick me up where we left off so I could finish the second half of my guest design spot! 🙂  Yay!  I am completely honored as I adore their fun products!

After discovering this company just a little over a year now, I have enjoyed watching Christopher’s videos and crafting along with him in my stamp room!  Since he was someone that was inspirational to me (without knowing it), I dedicated this card to him and sent it his way!

Vicki-BM-Trifold Easel Card

This is quite a unique card and one that is new to me, but it’s called a “Triangle Corner Pop-Up card” and I’m not quite sure as to exactly who to give credit to other than I know it came from a Stampin’ Up! demonstrator somewhere!  (If someone knows the individual to give credit to, please let me know!)  I also started this card back in June, so putting it together piece by tiny piece as I went along with being in pain was a feat in itself!  LOL!  So you could say this one took me a little over a month to complete! WOW!

**If you’d like for me to do a video on how to make this type of card, let me know as I’m sure I could duplicate it! (pain free and much quicker than a month! LOL!)

I’ve used this adorable Brutus & Friends stamp set for my design.  The dog next to the dog house is represented as “Brutus” which is the beloved pet (crossed rainbow bridge) that the company was named after.  The other pup in the background peeking out is his other fur family named “Benny”.  CUTE!!

I’ve stamped them out with the BM Raven Detail ink and colored them with Copics and some of the Brutus Monroe StyleFile markers too. I then fussy cut them out with my BM Fussy Cutting Scissors and set them aside while I assembled the rest of the card.

As for the circle design in the center, it forms a little mini easel card inside the ‘box’ design.  I’ve made the easel card with the BM Lunch bag Cardstock and cut it from circle dies.  I’ve also heat embossed the sentiment with BM Alabaster embossing powder from the BM Super Sentimental stamp set and made a separate panel so that it holds the front of the circle easel flap in place.

For the “grassy” looking area at the bottom and the “clouds” in the upper triangle sections of the card, I’ve used the BM Set the Scene Stencils with some Distress Inks and a Blending tool.

In order for the scene to come together and form this shape, there is a hidden aspect in the corners of the design to keep it together.  I have used the BM Mini Disc Magnets and glued them behind the layered panels so you can’t see them, but they come together to hold the card scene in place.  These are tiny, but they make for a nice sturdy closure!

I also wanted to mention that the “Brutus Monroe” in the cloudy area along with the woodgrain looking background came from a product packaging.  I thought it was the perfect way to create the “fence line” area of the scene.

When you want to close up the design for mailing, you will take it apart so that it looks like this.  See on the left side that there is even a spot so you can write a personal message or stamp something.  Then you will fold the top panel down and then close the right side over.

Here’s a quick 80 second video so that you can see how it works in action: CLICK HERE to watch on You Tube!

I thought it was pretty cool that you can lay this design completely flat and put it in an A2 sized envelope!  I have taken a BM Lunch Bag envelope to mail mine in!

I hope you’ve enjoyed my interactive card today!  Please be sure to have a look at the Brutus Monroe products and let them know I sent you over!  Thanks so much for stopping in and I’ll see you soon!

    1. Hey my friend! You certainly don’t have to set up an account for WordPress to comment. Anyone can comment, but I have to approve it if you’ve not left a comment before. If you don’t change anything in your typing when you leave a comment, then after it has been approved once by me, you will be able to leave a comment without my approval because you’ve been here before. But, it has to be typed up exactly the same each time. Hope that helps! Thank you for taking the time to leave me your kind thoughts!! HUGS


  4. Ok, Vicki, I’m putting in my vote for a tutorial on how to make this card, either a video or still photos and instructions, I don’t care which. I love different kinds of folds on cards and I definitely want to learn to do this one. I love the image you chose and your coloring is perfect! The entire thing is beautifully done.
