Hip Hip Hooray! Here's one more take on my January SOTM card, this time using an adorable cupcake embellishment I cut on my Cricut using the Art Philosophy Cartridge! Because you can never have too many birthday cards in the stash...

I used the Cuttlebug Seeing Spots Embossing Folder on the background White Daisy CS, then painted over the embossed areas with Pearl Paint to bring out the texture. I decorated my Cricut cupcake using Stickles Glitter Glue in Platinum and Waterfall. Finally, I popped up the main Calendar embellishment  using 3-D Foam squares so that the hemp wrap wouldn't make my focal point pop off the card. Now let's celebrate!

P.S.: I heard rumblings that Cricut is discontinuing the old style green cutting mats, and that the new white border mats are just not as sticky. Since I don't like the mat to be too sticky, I'm ok with that switch. I already have the new white border mats and that's what I used to cut my scallop circle and cupcake for this card. They worked fine for me....but int he spirit of equal opportunity crafty enabling, I did notice the ScrapbookPal has the old style mats at a great price - so stock up today before they disappear! Some of the links throughout this post take you to  They carry a lot of great lines at affordable prices. Happy shopping!
