A Henry Christmas!

Christmas....I know it's over....however this is the present that I made for my Gram, and since she reads my blog and I didn't give her the gift until this past Wednesday I couldn't share with you before! :)  But now Gram has her present and I can share it with all of you!

Of course you know that WOJs are my ultimate favorite stamps!  When I first started buying them Gram loved for Christmas I made Gram her own image holder and of course stamped numerous images for her which went along with -->THIS<-- card that I made for Gram and Gramps.

This is Henry Mouse with Christmas Bauble!  I used the matchbox technique to create this slider box.  I tweeked the measurements so that finished box measured 6 x 6.  Papers are from the BG Figgy Pudding Collection and Bazzill Bling Cardstock.

Henry was colored with my CopicsLiquid applique was added to his hat.  Before I heat set the liquid applique I sprinkled it with glitter to add some sparkle to the fluff.  The snowflake on Henry's ornament was painted with Moonlight Smooch and the ornament topper was painted with Snickerdoodle Smooch for some added metallic shine.

Here you can see the images in the holder, already for Gram to color away!

 And of course a side view for you to see the dimension.
