I'm so excited to introduce... MDS Mondays!
MDS stands for My Digital Studio, Stampin' Up!'s new crafting software.
I've been featuring digital cards and layouts for the past month and a half, and have had so many requests from blog readers for more! That means that you can expect to see more examples, tricks and how-to's from me on a weekly basis.
Okay.. on to today's example!
I wanted to create a sample Holiday Photo card, where I could take a picture of the kids and incorporate it into the design. For this, I started off with one of the pre-designed 6x6 card layouts from the "Christmas Jingle" Scrappin' Kit (included in the software).
Because I knew that I'd require more room along the bottom green Designer paper area for the photo, I simply moved up the "ho ho ho" elements, the paper and ribbons.
This left me plenty of space to drag on an old picture I had of the kids with Santa, create a mat effect with the matching Real Red and VOILA... all done!
Be sure to leave me a comment or request if there's anything special you'd like me to show you!
