Action Santa ~ Power Poppy's Happiest Holiday Collection'm back to share another Power Poppy card that I made for this week's sneak peaks.  We're featuring a set called Action Santa, and, in my opinion, it's one of the most unique, fun, and adorable Santa sets out there!  A definite must have for sure!!  

I chose to color up the Scooter Santa, because, first of all, I adore that scooter, and secondly, we actually have a blue scooter.  It's more baby blue, but shoot, I'm a turquoise freak, so I had to lean more in that direction.  Doesn't Santa look jollier than ever? 

Since this month's Power and Spark challenge is to "Make it Move", I thought it would be fun to make another shaker card in the form of a Twisted Circle Easel card.  When folded, it lays flat, and when you open it up, it twists and stands on the base.

This set also includes 3 little snowflakes, and little collage of flakes that I used for the frame.

I added one of the little sentiments to the banner on top, and one on the inside as well.

Now, a little word to the is not smart to decide to emboss after adding velvet ribbon to your card.  Stamping, as well as adding the powder is a challenge.  Since my card was already glued together when I decided to add the sentiment, there wasn't anything I could do to fix the "splotchiness" of the embossing.  It has nothing to do with the stamp itself...these babies work beautifully.  It was the operator of said stamp that messed up....anyway...the sentiment says "Sending a flurry of festive tidings".  Isn't that charming?

Oh, Tosh, how absolutely adorable! He has me chuckling at each card...with his chubby, smiling face as he whooshes down the hill! Hehe! Beautifully done and colored, and what a great card idea...and I love that it's a shaker card.
