Now, ready to try MDS?
Ahora lista para intentar el MDS?
Alert Alert...long but fun tutorial below for all my beginner MDS friends
ALERTA ALERTA...tutorial largo pero chevere aqui abajo para todos mis nuevos amigos de MDS.
 Open MDS and choose a postcard size project to make.Then click on the LEFT- RESOURCE PALETTE on the last icon, the one for the BACKGROUND PAPERS.
Abre Mi Estudio Digital y escoje hacer una tarjeta postcard. De ahi abre el RESOURCE PALETTE a la derecha y oprime el dibujito a la derecha del Resource Palette que abre los diversos papeles.

Pick the paper of your choice. I picked Sun Garden-9 DSP.
Escoge un papel para el fondo de tu tarjeta. Yo escogi Sun Garden-9

From there go to the bottom right corner, to the MAGNIFYING GLASS icon.
Clcik and write the word "flag" inside the box.
De ahi ve a la esquina inferior derecha a la LUPA. Oprime y escirbe "flag" (banderin) en la cajita.

On the previous picture I picked "FLAG PUNCH" and inserted it twice, to have two.
En la foto anterior yo escogi "FLAG PUNCH" y lo inserte dos veces, para tener dos.

I went then to my right DESIGNER CENTER under PUNCHES and click on PAPER FILL to fill one of my flags with Designer Series Paper. I picked Sun Garden 7 and clicked OK.
De ahi me fui a la derecha donde dice DESIGNER CENTER y escogi donde dice PAPER FILL para llenar mi banderin con un papel bonito.Escogi Sun Graden-7 y oprimi OK.
From there I went ahead and changed the size of my secind flag clicking on it and moving the corners, I positioned it behind my first flag.
De ahi cambie el tamano de mi otro banderin oprimiendolo y moviendo las esquinitas y lo coloque detras de mi primer banderin. Quiero sea un poquito mas grande que el otro.

Now I clicked COLOR FILL on the DESIGNER CENTER to my right and picked CRUMB CAKE for my second flag. ( Moving my mouse on top of each color will tell me their names.)
De ahi oprimi COLOR FILL en el DESIGNER CENTER  a la derecha y escogi el color CRUMB CAKE para mi segundo banderin. Si pasas el ratoncito por encima de los colores te da el nombre de cada uno.

In the DESIGNER CENTER and still under PUNCHES press DROP SHADOW.
I changed my Opacity to about 50% and my BLUR toless than medium.
En el DESIGNER CENTER y aun bajo PUNCHES oprimi el DROP SHADOW para anadir sombra a mis banderines. Cambie mi OPACITY a 50% y mi BLUR a menos de la mitad.

 Then BEFORE clicking Ok, I clicked my APPLY TO ALL PUNCHES "IN THIS PROJECT", then click ok. That way both my flags will have a nice shadow.
Antes de apretar ok, oprime el cuadrito que dice APPLY TO ALL PUNCHES "IN THIS PROJECT" para aplicar la sombra a ambos bandeirnes
 Now go to your left side RESOURCE PALETTE and click on the little flower icon to access all embellishments. Ahora ve a tu izquierda al RESOURCE PALETTE y escoge la florecita para accesar todos los adornos o embellishments.
Resize your object holding by the corners.
Cambia el tamano de tu objeto oprimiendo y moviendo las esquinitas.
Now on the right RESOURCE PALETTE press where it says MIRROR so your bow will be on the other side. Ahora a la drecha en el RESOURCE PALETTE presiona donde dice MIRROR para que se vire el lazo.

To your right on the DESIGN CENTER click on the CROP icon.
Now crop holding the corners to make that ribbon end on the right flat not edged.
A la derecha en el DESIGN CENTER oprime donde dice CROP.
Corta la parte de la derecha para que quede el corte dercho y no esquiniado.

Go to the top bar and find VIEW, on VIEW go to CANVAS ZOOM and hit at least 125%
Ve arriba a la barra donde dice VIEW y oprime ahi donde dice CANVAS ZOOM. Ve al menos a 125% para ver mas grande.

Now position your ribbon end as if is coming from behind your flag as shown.
Ahora pon la cinta como si viniera de la parte de atras del banderin como ves aqui.

We are almost done but we need a sentiment so this time go to the bottom right corner were the MAGNIFYING GLASS is and write "thanks" inside the box.
Ya casi terminamos pero nos hace falta un sentimiento asi que ve nuevamente a la LUPA a la derecha abajo y escribe "thanks" adentro de la cajita.

Clicking the corners of your sentiments size it down and position to the bottom right of your card.
Aprtando las esquinitas de tu sentiment hazlo mas pequeno y muevelo a la esquina inferior derecha.


I didnt like how my background paper looked so to change it go to the right side DESIGNER CENTER and find the BACKGROUND PAPERS. Click on DESIGNER SERIES PAPER and from there make your choice.
A mi no me gusto como se veia ese papel de fondo asi que fui a la derecha al DESIGNER CENTER y busque los papeles bajo BACKGROUND PAPERS. Oprime DESIGNER SERIES PAPERS y escoge tu papel.

Your card is ready! Make sure you SAVE your creation as a MDS project on the top bar under FILE>SAVE. Also go to the right DESIGNER CENTER and find SHARE. There click on the middle box where it says EXPORT PAGES. Export to a folder as a jpg which is the formt of a picture and print as one. I printed 4 postcards into one 8 1/2" x 11" Whsiper White Cardstock then cut.
Tu tajetita esta lista! Asegurate de SAVE guardarla arriba donde dice FILE y luego SAVE. Tambien ve a la derecha al DESIGNER CENTER y encuentra SHARE. Ahi oprime la cajita del medio que dice EXPORT PAGES. exporta tu proyesto a un archivo de tu preferencia en el formato JPG que es el formato de las fotos.
