Don’t let what you see in your choice of elements limit you. For example, this shape is the perfect mat for a square photo but you happen to need a rectangle.Shape one

However, if you stretch it out to a rectangle, the scallops are stretched out. This does not look right! There is a way to get around it with this shape and several others (but obviously not all of them).
Shape Two

1. Insert, Shape from Content Section, From art kit, Decorative Cardstock Digital Shapes, Shape 14.

2. Duplicate the shape and change the color.

Shape Three

3. Zoom in and line up the scallops while creating the rectangle size needed.Shape Four

4. Flatten the two elements together and fill with color, paper or a photo.

Now, THAT was easy!
