Can you post a screenshot from Xd with the layers panel visible, so we can see what exactly you're selecting for the export? Did you select the artboard, or did you group the 2 items together and select the group for export?

 

If they are separate layers, and you selected the layers, then you will get the result you got - each layer for itself. If you group them together and export the group, then you'll get them as an image together (which is what you want).

Hey, to group the layers, select them both like you have there, and press Ctrl + G, or right-click on them and select Group.

If you intend on using Xd for more things in the future, it will be useful to go through some tutorials and get a grasp on the basics 🙂

One solution is to group the design and then export the group.

 

The other is to create an artboard. XD assumes (for the most part) that you work on artboards. Design on that artboard, and then export the artboard.
