Tennis card

This is a card I made for a young lady's birthday. She plays tennis on her High School team.  The inside of the card says "Have a ball on your birthday and raise a 'racket'." The tennis ball was welded together to make the card base using CDS and then the top ball was run through the Xyron to make it sticky. I then sprinkled it with yellow flocking powder. It turned out amazing. It feels just like a real tennis ball. Stripes were cut by hand.

Supplies used:
Everyday Paper Dolls Crucit cart. (tennis ball cut at 5", player and parts cut at 3")
Paper is misc cardstock
Stampendous fuzzy flock
Gelly Roll pens
Peachy Keen face assortment
ribbon scrap
