Wow! I know a LOT of people born in January - both genders and all age ranges! Here's a card that will work for most of them - at least teens and older. It's based on a sketch from Splitcoast (sketch 364), it's easy to make, and it's nice a sparkly for the new year!

BASE CARD and MAT LAYER
Cut a piece of dark brown card stock measuring 7" x 10", score at 5" and fold. Cut the designer paper to 4 7/8" x 6 7/8" and mount on the card front.
Cut/emboss a large plain circle from the dark brown card stock, and a large pinking circle from copper card stock. Mount the copper circle onto the brown circle. Mount the stacked circles onto the lower left corner of the card so that the edge of the circle aligns with the corner of the card. This causes some of the circle to hang over the 2 sides of the card. Flip the card over, and trim the excess circle, using the card as your guidelines.
Cut a strip of brown card stock measuring 1" x 7", and mount the ribbon onto the card stock strip, then mount the strip across the card front.
Using the glue stamp pad, stamp the tree image onto an ivory card stock panel measuring 3 1/4" x 3 1/4". Cover with Metal Leaf flakes, and press, then brush off excess with a stencil brush. Mount the burnished image onto mats of copper card stock (3 3/8" x 3 3/8") and brown card stock (3 1/2" x 3 1/2"). Mount the image onto the card front.
Cut/emboss an ivory card stock oval, and stamp the Wish Big sentiment in dark brown ink onto the oval. Mount the sentiment onto the card front using foam squares.
