You're Leafing?

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! :)
