Extreme Surfboard MDS card

sketch on Create With Connie and Mary

I love this sketch for challenge 263 on Create with Connie and Mary and I challenged myself to create a card with this sketch using MDS. I am really excited how the card turned out.

How did I get the stamped image cut into four parts? I opened a 4.25 x 5.5 greeting card in MDS. On the first page I added four photo frames and sized them the way the sketch was. Then I grouped them. On the second page of the card, I added the Extreme Surfboard stamp and resized it to fit. Then I saved the second page as a jpeg to my desktop. Next I went back to my grouped photo frames and dragged the second page into the frames. Voila…it was spread out across all the frames. I had fun choosing a greeting to fit the extreme stamp, and added Baker’s Twine for embellishment. I have a thing about naked backgrounds in MDS so I added the chevron overlay and changed the color to Baja Breeze to give a subtle texture to the Pool Party card stock.
