Torn Paper Technique


  • Stamp sets: Very Versailles – 149275 and Quiet Meadow 155082
  • Cardstock: Basic White Thick Cardstock 159229
  • Stampin’ Pads: Calypso Coral 147101, Bermuda Bay 147096, Crumb Cake 147116, Soft Suede 147116, Old Olive 147090
  • Miscellaneous: Brick & Mortar embossing folder 149643, Meadow Dies 155852, Detailed Trio Punch 146320, Blending Brushes 153611, Sponge Daubers 133773, Multipurpose Liquid Glue 110755, Dimensionals 104430, Mini Dimensionals 144108


  • Card base 5 ½” x 8 ½” – Score at 4 ¼”. 
  • Front layer 5 ¼” x 4”
  • Inside layer 5 ¼” x 4”


  • Fold card base in half and burnish with bone folder
  • Use corner rounder in the Detailed Trio Punch to round the upper right and lower right corners of the card base.
  • Using blending brushes, lightly swirl Old Olive ink onto the front of the card base
  • Emboss the front layer with Brick & Mortar embossing folder
  • Blend Crumb Cake ink over the embossed layer using blending brushes. 
  • Add color touches with Bermuda Bay, Calypso Coral and Soft Suede
  • Tear the cardstock, starting about 2/3 of the way from the left corner and tear from right to left in a downward irregular motion toward the bottom left.
  • Tear more from the piece on the right so that you have a gap when the pieces are placed on the card base. BUT DO NOT ADHERE THE PIECES YET.
  • Using Soft Suede ink (or even Early Espresso) sponge daub the torn edges and also all around the other edges to give it a vintage look
  • Once you know generally where your torn pieces will go and how much of a gap you have, stamp the script writing from Quiet Meadow stamp set in Old Olive at the top and bottom where the gap will be. 
  • Using Calypso Coral, stamp the leaves from Very Versailles stamp set over the stamped writing images.
  • Adhere the torn pieces to the card base – one on the left and one on the right so that you have a gap in the middle and that your stamped images show.
  • Using the Meadow dies, die-cut two flowers and some leaves. You may have to trim the flower stems and the leaves to make them fit properly.
  • Place dimensionals or mini dimensionals on the back of the flowers. 
  • The flower stems and leaves are too slender for dimensionals, so use liquid glue to adhere them to the card, and the dimensionals will pop up the flowers. 
  • Stamp a happy birthday sentiment with Bermuda Bay on a strip of white cardstock and adhere to the bottom of the card with dimensionals. 


  • Round the top right and bottom right of the card layer using the Detailed Trio Punch
  • Sponge daub Soft Suede ink all around the edges to make it stand out.
  • Stamp the “Have a Beautiful Day” sentiment from the Very Versailles stamp set in Soft Suede
  • Use Calypso Coral to stamp some leaves from Very Versailles on the top right
  • Stamp the decorative stamp from Very Versailles with Soft Suede on the left of the inside of the card for additional visual interest (optional)
