I love trying different techniques when it comes to my cards. One technique I don't use that often (but always love the effect when I do) is paper tearing. It gives the paper edge a bit of a different look...and I discovered that inking up the torn edge makes it stand out even more! Love it!
So here's the card.
I had some amazing textured red paper in my stash that I've been wanting to use. I tore about 1/3 of a corner off...and then inked along the edge to make it pop even more. Stuck that onto some white cardstock that I had embossed with my "Swiss Dots" folder. Finally I added the image...with dimensional foam. And to make it all come together, I added some red ribbon and some black bling from my stash. :)
Thanks for stopping by my blog today. Be sure to leave a comment and I'll come visit your blog. :) I always love to hear what you think of my cards. Feedback is always appreciated. :)
