Son and Daughter-in-Law at Christmas

Honour thy father and mother; (which is the first commandment with promise;)

Ephesians 6:2

This is a card made for my Godmother to give her son.  She can’t get out to buy a card now and her son is wonderful to her.  I made the sentiment myself and the backing paper with the couple ia a Hunkydory free paper that came with Making Cards Magazine.  The silver embellishments are cut with Spellbinders and the card was finished with some crystal glitter.


I’ll enter my cards into these challenges: – holidays – anything goes – Christmas – anything goes – Christmas – Gliter it – christmas
