SO GET READY, RUN TO YOUR CRAFT AREAS AND GET CRAFTY! DONT FORGET TO CHECK OUT THE OTHER DESIGN TEAM MEMBERS PROJECTS TO GET SOME INSPIRATION OR SIMPLY ENJOY.
My kids and I have watched the Olympics pretty much from the start and weve really enjoyed seeing the athletes represent their countries so well in all events, but I must say, swimming, high dive and track/field are our most favorite events of all. So, for my project I decided to make a card with the swim teams in mind. Hope you like it.
Go for the gold!
For this card I used the following cartridges and measurements. George and Basic Shapes-circles
(pg 108), cut at 1 3/4 inches and 1 1/2 inches, Plantin SchoolBook-letters and numbers, cut at
3/4 inch and Sports Mania-swimmer (pg 68), cut at 1/2 inch, 3/4 inch, 1 inch and 1 1/2 inches.
To make this card I created a mat using red, black and white card stock to place on the black card base. I then cut the Olympic rings using my Gypsy...this was done by placing the smaller circles into the larger ones and cutting. After the rings were made, I simply made a small cut in the yellow and green rings and wove them around the top three rings.
The rest of the card is simply assembling the images and lining up the letters/numbers where youd like them placed.
Thanks so much for stopping by and having a look. Kathie
