Summer Smooches Sneak Peek: MDS Hybrid Card

I used the new Summer Smooches Digital Kit (available for customers on April 1st!) to create this My Digital Studio (MDS) hybrid card for my team meeting earlier this month. The background design was printed from the card template that comes with the digital kit and then we embossed the greeting on Daffodil Delight cardstock and adding rhinestones to finish the card.

Creating hybrid cards with My Digital Studio is easy! My home printer is not very good, so I prefer to print my designs at a local copy center. Here's how: In My Digital Studio, I saved the card image as a JPG. Then, in Microsoft Word, I "inserted" the JPG image as a picture. I right-clicked on the image and then I edited the "Size" of the picture and made it 4" x 5.25". I copied and pasted the picture so that there were four on the page, one in each corner. Finally, I did a "Save As" and saved the file as a PDF. I put the PDF on a flash drive and took it to the local copy center along with our Whisper White cardstock and had it printed. The colors were clear and vibrant, MUCH better than my home printer!

Hi! I'm still new to MDS although I'm already in love with it. I was able to open up my digital kit and open the card... but I cant figure out how you saved it and was able to get 4 on one page. Could you explain that to me?
