This card has been made for special purpose. But because I haven't given the receiver the card yet I can't say what it's for! If you have a guess, leave it in the comments.

I'm really pleased with how this card came up with. I was a little worried at different points of making this. Mostly because I was using a new technique...flocking! I used an orange flocking on the wings and the beak and white for the rest of the duck. At first I really struggled with what type of adhesive to use. I didn't like liquid glue because of how it affects the paper. I could use my Xyron sticker maker for the small parts, but the duck wouldn't fit in that. As I was looking for a better option in Hobby Lobby it hit me. SPRAY ADHESIVE! I couldn't believe I didn't think of it before. It worked really well, the flocking applied evenly.
