Just like an Advent Calendar, you’ll never know where you’re going to be visiting next until you ‘open the door’!

Merry and Bright card-designed by Lori Tecler/Inking Aloud-stamps from SugarPea Designs
Here's my project for today's hop.  I used the adorable Merry Makers stamp set and coordinating SugarCuts Merry Makers dies from SugarPea Designs for my card.  The elf was colored with Copic markers, then cut with the matching die.  I coated the light bulbs with some Glossy Accents to give them a glass-like look.

The image was adhered to the green cardstock panel using foam tape for dimension.  I stamped the "May your Christmas be merry and bright" sentiment on a silver banner strip, then slid the it underneath the raised elf image.  The image and sentiment were accented with a trio of sparkly silver enamel dots.
