Bib Card-No Fear

Here is my December Crafters of Faith card.  This is a great group that my friend Kelly started on SCS. This is our 24th month and Jeanette gave everyone this challenge as we finish our 2nd year: 

Scripture:  Luke 2: 8-10… And there were shepherds living out in the fields nearby, keeping watch over their flocks at night. An angel of the Lord appeared to them, and the glory of the Lord shone around them, and they were terrified. But the angel said to them, “Do not be afraid. I bring you good news that will cause great joy for all the people. 

ChallengeLet's focus on a part of these verses that do not directly relate to the Christmas story, even though we are posting in the month of December. The challenge is to focus on the words: “Do not be afraid.” You can use an image of something that you have a fear of (for instance, for me it might be snakes), you can try a technique/fold/etc that you’ve been afraid to try before because it looks too intimidating, or you can take some other approach as long as it has something to do with fear or the lack of fear.

I made a card using a package of cards that I got last year at a sale at The Paper Cut in Appleton, WI.  I took two classes from Sarah and they also had a warehouse sale that we could shop.  They are known for their unique cards, with fancy folds, window cards, overlays, etc.  I bought a couple of packs of Bib cards and the matching overlays in different colors.  They were still packaged and I thought it was time to open.  Did I mention the class and sale was in August of 2017?!  I am not sure I was truly afraid to use these cards-but I did overcome a bit of procrastination or is it procraftination....................

I thought the overlay would be cute embossed with the Stampin' Up Cable Knit folder and I think the cards looks like a sweater!  I used two stamps from the Waterfront stamp set to make a friendship card!

Here is the inside of my card:

I hope Jeanette along the others like my card this month!  We are to post between the 7th and 10th of each month, so if you look on my sidebar, you may see other creations.  I know that there will be many posted in the COF thread on SCS too! We will do it again in 2019, so be sure to check back to see what she picked.

Barb, I'm sorry - Jeanette does NOT like your card. She LOVES it! How creative and beautiful... and amazing! I'm glad you conquered your procraftination (and perhaps a little fear) in finally opening that package and making a stunning card!
