Olympic Games Rio 2016

Olympic Ring Foyer Card

by Mark Melnick

A display card with splatter versions of the Olympic Rings to celebrate the opening of the Olympic Games in Rio. The rings were colored with Memento Inks matching the classic Olympic colors.

Some people have annual parties for the Oscars, Tonys, or the Emmys. But us, well, every four years we throw a fabulous party for the ultimate awards program, the Olympics. This Foyer Card is perfect for this occasion, and easy to customize for any awards program.

Skill: Beginner
Time: 45 Minutes


Begin by taking a piece of heavy weight white cardstock (110lb) and printing a quote that fits the occasion and print it along with words from some of the categories of your awards program. Cut it into a horizontal shape. My piece is 5.5” x 11”.

Step 1

Die cut 5 circles out of cardstock. I’m using Spellbinders Seth Apter Splatter Proof die, which will give my Olympic rings a bit of flare, like Rio itself.


Step 2

Ink each of your die cuts with the Olympic Ring colors: blue, black, red, yellow and green.


Step 3

Adhere the rings in the proper Olympic order. I added “Rio 2016” stamped in Delicata Black Shimmer in the lower left ring. Display Foyer Card on an easel or up against a shelf – make sure it’s visible so that your friends will oooh and ahhhh.
