Runway Inspired Challenge - #22

I've never played along with the Runway Inspired Challenge, but I usually look at all the beautiful cards that are created for this challenge.  This week...I was inspired by the photo, and couldn't wait to create a card!


Here's my take on this week's Runway Inspired Challenge:


When I saw the photo, it made me think of a candy cane...thus my card.  I cut a white panel slightly smaller than the Kraft card base and embossed it with an embossing template from PTI.  I then cut the letters "J" and "Y" in the panel, leaving a space of the "O".  Rather than just cut out an "O", I decided to make it a peppermint candy.  I punched 4 one inch circles and glued them together, then using a Copic marker, I colored my red stripes on the candy.  I also added some glossy accents (it's difficult to see here).  The holly leaves are a QK die and the berries are red pearls.  I layered a small piece of the striped paper on the card base and then pop dotted the white layer over it.  Super quick and easy!

Thanks so much for stopping by for a visit! I appreciate you comments more than you know!  Until next time...

Hugs!

Oh, man, I LOVE this and have pinned it, Susan. It nails the challenge, but even w/o the challenge, it's my idea of CAS perfection for a holly berry and joy card!! Yum!

(Thank you for your congrats today!)

I love the cutouts with the candy cane paper behind, and that bit of holly. But that peppermint candy takes top billing!
