If you've come from {Amy's Blog}, you're on the right path. We have almost 60 Close To My Heart Consultants sharing their creations using this month's SOTM and other great CTMH products on their blogs. This is simple to do - just click on the link at the end of the post on each blog to move to the next one! Here we go! 

Since December got super hectic very quickly for me this year, I did not get my Christmas cards done.  I think it's the first year in the last 14 that I have not done any Christmas cards.  When the 19th rolled around and I still hadn't started, I decided to concede defeat and came up with a plan to do New Year's cards instead. January's Stamp of the Month is the PERFECT set for New Year's!

I love how the images in this set coordinate well with the Cricut Art Philosophy Cartridge! The large month's circle is cut at 2 1/2" inches using [circle1]. The smaller dates circle is cut at 1 3/4 inches using [circle1]. I cut the little banner pieces at 2" using [banner1].   I started off using the Delightful Dots pattern from Wishes and then modified it slightly.  The "12" is embossed in Cocoa embossing powder for a little extra flair. I also placed bitty sparkles in between the months on the larger circle.

For a little added dimension, I used 3D Foam tape to pop the date late off the month layer.  I added a little dark chocolate striped grosgrain ribbon to finish off the card.
