Back To School!


Hello everyone!  Kymona here from Kreative Kymona, with a nice and simple back to school card for a male teacher.

My daughter has a male teacher for the first time this year and I need as many projects for him as possible.

So today’s card is for him.  Take a look at my card:

Your The Best

For those of you who know me, you know my style is clean and simple.

It took no time to create this card.

1. I started with my card base measuring 4.25 x 5.50. I rounded the corners.

2. My panel piece measures 4 x 5. I rounded the corners. I stenciled the Hero Arts Numbers Background using Hero Arts Butter Bar and Orange Soda Mid-Tone Inks.

3. Then I cut the panel into three pieces shaving of about 6/16 of inch from the the middle panel.

4. I adhered the pieces to the card base using foam tape.

5. I stamped my sentiment with Versamark Ink and embossed it with Hero Arts Embossing Power, then cut it out.

6. I adhered the pieces with foam tape.

7. I added Hero Arts Gems to each of the sentiment pieces.

Easy!  You can make this card for all of the teachers that your child has in school this year, just change the card base if you want.

Don’t forget to participate in the Current Challenge.  It’s running to the end of the month.  The theme is Encouragement.  You have a chance to win a $25.00 gift card to the store.

Hello, I’m Kymona Tracey. Who am I, you ask? I am a women who never slows down and loves it. Yes... I am the energizer bunny's sister! I just keep going and going (which is something that I am working on, if you follow my weekly wishes on my blog). I am a single mother of two wonderful children who are 8 years apart. My 16 year old son is a true self-made jock who plays every sport you can think of ! My 7 year old daughter is a real life princess who loves anything crafty and girly and absolutely hates anything related to sports. Talk about yin and yang! ...but I love it!! Besides running from one activity to another with them, I work full time at a hospital (public health background), facilitate a reading group at work, teach high school students on the weekends and have a huge love of learning new things. I’ve taken classes in photography, web design, knitting, scrapbooking and card-making. I love them all, however, my true passion is card-making. I was introduced to card making back in 2004 and haven’t turned back since. I started out as a hobbyist just making cards for family and friends. People were always ecstatic when they received a card from me. What they did not know was that it made me feel just as special to make a card for them. This passion pushed me into teaching card-making classes at work with a couple of coworkers who wanted to learn how to make projects for their families. In September 2013, I made a big leap and created my blog, Kreative Kymona. Besides being a mom, I think that this has been one of my most rewarding accomplishments. Just being able to share with my world community makes life so rewarding!

    • Hey Barb!! Thank you so much for your kind comment. Its amazing how a simple cut can make a big difference. The stenciled piece looked so nice as one. I was afraid to cut it but then I said whats the worse that could happen. After I cut it, I was very pleased with how it look. I hope my daughters teacher likes it!!
