I decided that while I was at it I would also use MDS to make the base layer. For this I opened a horizontal 5 1/2 by 4 1/4 greeting card. I wanted to have a brushstroke looking image behind the shells, so I did a search through my stamps and choose two I thought worked nicely. I added them to my card and colored them Crumb Cake. Next I added a "splatter' stamp and colored it in Baked Brown Sugar. The final stamp was my sentiment. With MDS you will see at the bottom that all four sides to you card can be designed, but I only wanted the card front, so I left the others blank. When printing you can tell the software that you are printing all fronts. Here is what that looks like...
When you select "Print", a new box will open up. Here is where you select how you want to print the page. Notice at the bottom where I placed a red arrow that there are four options? The first option is what is shown in the print box, basically half sheet folded in half.
The second option is a full sheet, folded in half, then half again. You could use this is you designed all four sides.
Here is the third option, two cards on one sheet, each fold in half.
I cut them slightly smaller at 51/4 by 4 so that I could attach them to a brushed gold base layer.
I hope that you will try our some MDS Hybrid cards!!
