Good Wednesday morning. I am excited to announce the Rubbernecker Early Black Friday Sale. There are lots of dies and stamps on sale so if you have been keeping a wish list you are definitely going to want to hop over and check it out. Today I’m sharing three masculine die cut wildlife tags perfect to use on presents for the guys in our lives. I think these would look great on packages wrapped in Kraft paper and gingham ribbon. I think rustic packaging is perfect for guys.
The Frame and Snow Layers
- Cut the frames and deckle snow layers using white cardstock.
- Apply double stick tape to the back lower portion of the frame.
- Trim the snow layers and attach them to the back of the frame.

- Cut the animals using white cardstock.

- Apply shades of darker brown ink to the bodies using Vintage Photo ink.
- Tuck the animals in behind the snow layer and attach to the background using pieces of mounting tape.
