Drat–My Christmas Sweater Holiday Tag didn’t win. I created it as a name tag for the Tacky Tag Contest at the World Card Making Day event I attended in Atlanta this past weekend. I didn’t even earn a “tacky” honorable mention for the jangling (obnoxious) silver bell or my “It’s all about ME” sentiment (what could be tackier than that bit of self-indulgence)!
Come on! I thought a Christmas sweater would be a shoe-in for the judges–think of all the ugly Christmas sweater contests that pop up during the holidays! However, much to my surprise no one agreed it was tacky. As a matter of fact, the feedback on my rhinestone studded sweater dotted with Christmas trees was “that is SO cute.” Sigh. I can roll with that. “Cute” is good. Next year I plan sharpen my “tacky” skills.
STAMPIN’ PRETTY TIPS:
- The sweater was created using the onesie from Baby’s First Framelits Dies.
- The “lanyard” is a piece of the 1/8″ Striped Ribbon (Garden Green) in the Stampin’ Up! Holiday Catalog.
- The mini Christmas trees are from the Square Pillow Box Thinlits Dies, on the list of My Favorite Things from the holiday catalog.
- “Me” was cropped from Red Glimmer Paper and was pirated from the word “merry” in the Christmas Greetings Thinlits Dies.
