Last week I entered a fall card into a couple of challenges. See that post here. It was a rather energetic undertaking and came out great. In fact I was chosen one of the top three on My Craft Spot. This week Fantabulous Cricut had a challenge called "Leaves are Falling". I wanted to do something entirely different for this one. I tried to think of a card other than a happy fall or thanksgiving one and here's what I came up with.
Using Accent Essentials, I copied, flipped and welded a leaf and cut if from kraft cardstock. I cut a template for the top layer. Then I inked a half sheet of paper, printed the sentiment on my computer, and laid it under the template to cut. Not quite right, so I did a little inking on the kraft paper and embossed the top layer to give it some shine. The sentiment "Sorry You're Leafing" could be for a retirement or moving card. I love a good pun! :)
