Personalised New Baby Card

I was asked to make a personalised new baby card in black and grey. I didn't want to use the usual dies I use for a baby card because I thought they would look odd in the colour scheme. I decided to use the Tonic teddies. I die cut them in grey and black and paper pieced them. I printed the personalised sentiments and die cut them using a Spellbinders nesting set and a nesting set from "The Works". I matt and layered the 8x8in white card with black and then grey card. I covered half of the card with white embossed card, I embossed this card with a Crafts Too embossing folder. I added grey ribbon down the centre of the card. I added the teddies and the sentiments to the card and then completed it with Tonic Nuvo drops.
