Puzzle Birthday

I find men's cards a nightmare, I mean it's OK when they play sport or have a hobby ... if not what do you do?So, I found these jigsaw puzzles at Handy Hippo, all plain white and ready to be stamped and under £4 for six, a bargain too.

So out came my waistcoat stamp and field of sky, I used black stayzon to stamp the images onto the jigsaw. Then I used watercolour pencils to colour them in. Added faux stitching around background and puzzle.

A little matting and layering, a scattering of puzzle pieces and voila, not the most genius card on the block but definitely passable.
