Little Athlete joins the NY Mets!

Hello everyone and welcome to my first ever Art Impressions design team post!
I am so excited to be on this team.  

For my first card I have something that was custom made for a good friend of mine.
She is friends with one of the N.Y. Mets and his wife.  They are expecting their first child
and it's a boy!  My friend asked for a baseball themed card in their team colors.  Not the 
easiest task in the world since their colors are Orange and Royal Blue but I think it
turned out nice. 

I've used Little Athlete on my card.  I did trim off the football and soccer ball
because the dad is a baseball player and that's what my friend wanted the focus on.

The little ball, bat and stars are plastic buttons.
The stars, octagon and scalloped octagon are Spellbinders dies.
I used a Cuttlebug embossing folder for the stars
and Stampin' Up punch for the sentiment.
Baby is colored with Copic markers.



  1. What a cute card! That baby is adorable! I'm sure your friends will love it!

  2. Great idea! Love that you used Copics. What colors do you use for skin? Nice post.
