Alf and Dylan Flying a Kite

Here's a card that I made for my Father and thought it was a fun summer theme as well. I used all the manly colors .... blues and neutrals... plus I tried to stay away from the flowers and lace in my embellishments to come up with this "man" card. I think I pulled it off... at least my Dad appreciated the effort that went into it so that counts. ;D

The image I used was Alf and Dylan Flying a Kite from Make it Crafty. To get the image to fit on the card I often like to use a diecut and cut around the edges... which is something I call "outside the diecut." However, I'm sure it has another name that's more appropriate! LOL

Here's what it looks like before I put the image through the cutting machine. I cut around the image on the places that would have been chopped - you can see my pencil marks as guidelines. Then I fit the diecut in and out so the image "spills out" of the metal frame.

If you happen to know the technical term just drop me a comment. ;D But now that you know how this works you're going to need it soon! So start practicing and be back soon for more details.

Below are the list of colors I used and hope you enjoyed the card! Cheers and happy coloring!
