Keep in Touch - Resizing DSP Tutorial

One of the products retiring this month is the My Digital Studio Keep in Touch CD.  This was one of the very first things that caught my eye when last year's catalog came out.  The retro images of TVs and phones are just my style.

There are also images that are perfect for a school layout or as in the card below notes to a friend.
The images on pencil DSP and dotted DSP were too large for the proportions of the card so I reduced the size of them.

Here is a quick tutorial of how to make this card including resizing DSP:

1.  Open a blank 4-1/4" X 5-1/2" landscape card.
2. Add three square punches to the page.   Pull the corners to form three rectangles sized approximately as shown.  Add DSP to each.  The top is Keep in Touch DSP #4, the middle is Keep in Touch DSP # 6, and the bottom is Keep in Touch DSP #1.
3.  Double click on the middle section.  It will bring up the Punch Image Editor.

4.  Click on the left zoom button (the negative) several times until the image is reduced to a size you like.
5.  Repeat with the bottom section.
6.  Add two Basic Gray Grosgrain ribbons from the embellishment section.  (These are full size- no need to adjust.  If you did want to change the size just double click on it.)
 7.  Add a Basic Gray Grosgrain Knot.  Use the mirror image button to flip is over.
8.  Add the envelope and pencil embellishments from Keep in Touch.
 I had my card professionally printed through Stampin' Ups print service.  Love the way it turned out!
