Happy Birthday Puzzle Card

Happy Birthday Puzzle Card

Puzzle Card wDSC_5639c lucky picasa.jpg

This card features a piece of patterned paper (either store bought or hand-made) and a greeting stamp.  I saw a tutorial for this type of card HERE and realized that it was a great way to use patterned paper that is too pretty to cover up.  Random, non-repeating patterns or scenes work best for this technique. Basically, you start with a piece of the patterned paper that you cut apart into several pieces, mat each piece, and then arrange them so the pattern looks the way it did before it was cut.  One of the panels is left off so a greeting could be added in the open space.  (The remaining piece was attached to the inside of the card on the sample I saw.)

My card above was cut and arranged similarly to the sample in the tutorial.  After I finished that card, I decided to try a few different layouts with different colors, cuts and arrangements….

The possibilities are endless!

All of these cards were made with a piece of The Paper Studio “Watercolor Floral” patterned paper (#230094 from Hobby Lobby) and a stamp from the “Made With Love” set by Gina K Designs.  Either Gina K Blue Lagoon or Lipstick card stock and ink was used.

Thanks for checking out my card project!
