Gingerbread Tags

Hello, everybody!  I've made some gingerbread tags!  One is a so-called ugly sweater (I call it a cute sweater!), and the other gingerbread has made the nice list.

I'm hoping to make more "ugly" sweaters, as this die set from Nicole Silhouette has lots of options.  In this case, I adhered the cute precoloured gingerbread man from Beccy's Gingerbread set, which I fussy-cut.  I used my Crop-o-dile to set a white eyelet and added pink baker's twine.

For the nice-list tag, I printed the same gingerbread (uncoloured version) on kraft paper and added accents with a white paint pen and Simply White Nuvo Crystal Drops.  I used a notepaper die to cut lined patterned paper (Lawn Fawn) and then stamped the sentiment in brown.  I used my Crop-o-dile to set a bronze eyelet and added brown ribbon (Offray).  Both gingerbreads are from the same set - Beccy's Place Gingerbread

I'm with you when it comes to the "cute sweaters" Kitty, I think lots of them are fabulous... although I have seen a few that are a little out there! Yours is gorgeous and I would definitely wear it proudly. The pink and kraft are a fabulous combo. I also love the Nice List tag you made. The inked edges make it look as though you popped it into the oven with the gingerbread man for a few minutes. Love the brown ribbon and metal eyelet too.

I remember when ugly sweaters were the thing to wear at Christmas. They weren't considered ugly in the '90's. I have lots of pictures of me wearing my favorite one. The little addition of the white pen really changes the look of the gingie. Great work!
