Last Minute Father's Day Card - English and Spanish

In case you haven't done your Father's Day cards yet, here's a quick card you can make in 45 minutes... Well one hour and 30 minutes if you do all the inking and the Mod Podge embellishing. Please note that the layout of the card is different between the english and the spanish version to accommodate the word Father and Papito (daddy in spanish) inside the red banner.
I wanted the right hue, so for the light blue cardstock I applied Peacock Feathers and a little Bundled Sage Distress Ink in a Mini blending tool to give it a bright blue color and spritzed drops of water to make it look a little bit aged.
The hat was darkened using Pumice Stone Distress Ink on a Mini Blending Tool. For the banner, instead of using a darker red color cardstock, I used the same one for the shadowed parts and colored it with a Cardinal Red R59 Copic Marker. I added darker accents on the mustache too. I also added highlights with a white gel Signo pen.

I finished the wording with some Mod Podge to make it look shiny and added a couple of drops here and there just for the heck of it. I like that it looks like dew drops.
I popped every single item on the card using 3M Mounting Tape because, boy I love dimension!

At first I had not rounded the corners of the rectangular panels on the SVG file and decided I didn't like them after cutting all, so I used a great I acquired recently from We R Memory Keepers called Crop A Dile Corner Chomper. I'll be using this a lot since most of my base cards are Note cards I cut on my paper trimmer and not on my machine.

Hope you enjoy it.
