I know some of you out there have been wondering, where is an Olympic Bear? Well, wonder no more! I have indeed created a bear inspired by the 2010 Winter Olympic Games. This bear is dressed for a debut in the Opening Ceremonies, ready to compete for Team USA. I tried my best to recreate/mimic the Team USA gear for the Opening Ceremonies. This bear is taking her place on a card stock frame that I received free from a friend and are samples from a popular printer manufacturer.
You need to use either your favorite circle cutter or punches to create the Olympic Rings. I looked up on google the colors of the rings: blue, yellow, black, green, and red. I was using scrap pieces of card stock for my rings and again, it is just important to select your colors to best mimic the shades of the rings. This will be subject to your opinion and tastes
Since my frame had a company logo in one corner that I needed to hide, I stamped the snowflake from Best Wishes and More and then punched them with my 1 3/8 punch. I glued these around the frame adding an oval and scallop oval at the bottom where I hand wrote the 2010 Winter Games, Vancouver.
If you like this project and think you would like to do a similar project with your child for either Mother's or Father's Day, please email me and let me know. I'm thinking of adding this to my class schedule for Mother's and/or Father's Day.
God Bless and Happy Stampin'!
