Don't Laugh! It's a cute idea...

I actually made this card last weekend, but didn't deliver it until I didn't post to be sure it would be a surprise. I bought the Cuttlebug Puzzle die a few weeks ago and then ordered some Craft-a-Board from Ellen Hutson's store. Craft-a-Board is thicker than cardstock...almost a chipboard thickness. I cut a A2 size piece, stamped with an image from the Quiet Moments set at Treehouse Stamps, and then *tried* to color in some grass, water, and a beautiful sunset. Okay...don't look at the sunset too long. Denean, will you come to Tennessee for some personal coloring lessons? Please?

Once I'd finished coloring, I ran it through the Cuttlebug using the puzzle die and cut the card into puzzle pieces.
Then I needed a box. I found this template from Jenn del Muro for a 4" square pizza box
After putting all the little puzzle pieces inside, I covered it with a paper scrap and tied it off with some ribbon.

awww Rachel, I think your card is cute! Love the puzzle idea! I havent attempted any backgrounds yet. In fact, I have lots of colored images, but have yet to put them on cards. Maybe I could color, and you can card them for me :)
hey did you check the Queen & Co blog... I think you won over there!!
