Its Monday again everyone!  Joan has a card sketch for us this week at MDS Monday.  She also added a challenge to use a stamp sized to be larger than the space, and to use a border stamp.  I chose a small wreath from Jolly bingo bits.  I edited the stamp to make it really big, and cropped off the parts that didn't fit the square.  The crop feature is great and you can crop an image two ways.  When you open a crop box (by clicking on the crop button to the right side of your screen) you get this...
You can then move the white squares to expand or contract the image shown.  This is how I cropped my wreath. 

You can also use a punch shape to crop your image.  I love this feature! Its so great when you are adding a stamp to a punch layer.  I took a screen shot to show you how this would look.  You can move the shape around on your image, reduce or enlarge the punch, reduce or enlarge your image.  Lots of options.

The FA LA LA LA LA  border stamp is from the Jingle and Joy download. 
Head on over to the MDS Monday site to see what the other team members have created.  Then show us what you can do!


  1. I love how festive this card is, Beth! The side element is fab, too! :)

  2. Fun use of the sketch, especially what you used for the border stamp! Great job with the additional samples.
