Faux Tearing Tutorial

I recently learned how to do this from my demo and I loved it. Faux Tearing is so easy to do and it comes in handy when you do not have a lot of cardstock in a certain shade or hue.


Card base
Ink to match
paper/cardstock to rip

Step One:

Fold cardstock base in half and decide which way the card is going to go, vertical or horizontal.

Step Two:

Take your piece of paper or cardstock and rip it in half, making sure that there are some curves in the paper.

Step Three:

Place your ripped cardstock on top of your card base so that the part of the card showing is where the ink will go.

Step Four:

Ink up your brayer.

Step Five:

Hold down the white paper and run your brayer over the base card. You will have to reink it several times to get full coverage.

Step Six:

Finish your card. Here are two examples.
