As it is Mother’s Day in the US on May 12th we have had a challenge to give you some ideas for Mother’s Day gifts and cards but they could be used for the special Mum in your life all year round.

I decided to make a gift tag for a bottle of Molton Brown shower gel/bath bubbles. I used the colour of the Heavenly Gingerlily to guide me towards my colour choices of bronze, brown and cream. The image is called Relax and is from BB Kakes.

I coloured the image in using Promarkers and Flexmarkers, fussy cut and added 3d foam for dimension. Please note that the wine of choice is red. Nothing like having a long hot soak in the bath with some quality reading material and a bottle of plonk J

For the tag I used the Grace Die from Crafters Companion which produced the pretty frame from some pearlescent bronze cardstock. The gold mat is cut from metallic card using a second part of the die which also embosses the panel. I tied a near perfect bow from some spotty ribbon and used some rustic textured string which is recycled from a gift package. I added lots of stickles glitter to make the bubbles pop and added a tag sentiment from When The Scrap Hits The Fun.

I don’t make tags very often but had fun making this and really ought to do more. Afterall when we go to so much trouble to make a gorgeous card it is such a shame when the gift packaging lacks that special something too.
