MDS Thursday: Fake it Til You Make It > Rounded Corner

I found this sketch in a magazine and decided to recreate it using MDS.

For the most part it was pretty self explanatory.  The only trick I used was when I wanted to recreate the curved edge on the top banner.

Here is how I faked a curved corner on the banner.

I started by adding the round corner punch to the page.

I enlarged the punch and place it where I wanted it.  Then I added a square punch, enlarged it, and placed it next to the corner punch.

Use the paper fill to add a paper.  This fake works best with a busy paper, so you don't have to match the seams, however if your patient it can work with any DSP.

Choose the same DSP for the paper fill of the round corner punch.

You can double click on the punch, then move the paper around until you find a good match where the seams don't show.  

To move the paper around> hold down the left mouse button and move around the page.  It's actually very cool to know you can pick any section of the paper.

And Ta Da!!!  Fake rounded corner.

Go give it a try.  Thanks for looking.
