My brother's birthday is this month... He's 45 but he's still a kid inside... so the card I made for him is a puzzle...
This is what he's going to receive:
I imagine his face when he gets it... He will open the bag and get the pieces just like these:
Then he'll have to put them together to be able to read the message.... Here it is:
Because it's the first one I make of this type, I worked in the surface of the puzzle with paint, stamps, embossing, gel pens, and glossy accents... I wanted to make it fast and simple... and for me these elements are better to work with...especially since you are working in a surface that you'll break apart in pieces. But with these puzzle cards from Joann you can work with patterned paper, 3D elements, fibers, fabrics, use the pieces as stencils, etc. etc... The cards come with envelopes, but I thought it was better to send in a bag as a treat... Do you like it?
