Tearing Cardstock

by Rose Ann Reynolds

Create a great edge by tearing your cardstock.



  1. Step 1

    Carefully tear edge of cardstock while pulling it towards you to reveal the colored core.

  2. Step 2

    Closeup of torn edge.

    The torn edge was curled up by using a fingernail. This look could also be achieved with a bone folder.

  3. Add stamped image to torn layer, and complete card..


  1. Use a tool
    For a more even torn edge, use a Tearing Edge™. Hold the Tearing Edge™ down and pull the cardstock toward the edge.

Hi Rose,
I loved that Tutorial on tearing the bottom of the card stock for your card that is great and I think the tool kinda doesn't let the colored core show quite as much, do you? that is the only thing I would have against using a tool.
Just my crazy ol opinion..:0)

Hi Mary! I agree that the tool doesn't quite show the core color as well. Please keep in mind that once you tear the layers, you can work the edges with your fingernail or bone folder to curl the edges up a little to reveal more of the core color.
