Faux Tearing (Video)

Today I’m bringing you another technique. This one is quite easy and is called Faux Tearing. It gives the impression of torn layers on your card but in fact you only have one layer.

So, I decided to make some Christmas Cards with this technique and you’ll be surprised at how easy it is and how the technique adds depth to your card. Here’s my sample card:

See those hills in the background? Does it look like I have a layer of torn paper behind those trees? See how to achieve this:

I decorated the inside of the card and the outside of the envelope with one of the other stamps in the set and used Smoky Slate and Night of Navy Stampin’ Write Markers from the Neutrals and Regals Stampin’ Write Marker sets.

Stampin’ Up! envelopes are beautiful quality for your hand made cards all for the cost of a regular postage stamp. You should consider buying some. Just try them, I’m sure you’ll be happy with them.


  • Card base is 14.8cm x 21cm scored and folded at 10.5cm or 5 1/2″ x 8 1/2″ scred and folded at 4 1/4″
  • Layer 1(Night of Navy) is 14.3cm x 10cm or 5 1/4″ x 4″
  • Layer 1 (Shimmery Whisper White) is 13.8cm x 9.5cm or 5″ x 3 3/4″
  • Card insert is 13.5cm x 9.5cm or 5″ x 3 3/4″

Here’s the finished card I made during the Video (both cards have the same insert):

Make sure you try this Faux Tearing technique. You’ll have fun plus add depth and interest to your card fronts without the layers.

Thank you for stopping by today and I hope you come back again soon to see what else I have to share.

Remember, your creativeness is only limited by your imagination. Keep smiling and until next we share…
