Either we're not understanding you, or you're not understanding a.l.e -- 
his method is the way to go.

If you combine shapes, you create something like a doughnut, which in 
your case will be a doughnut with a puzzle piece shaped hole, which will 
show any background object through it.

So, start with shapes, select both, then Item > Path Tools > Path 
Operations...  Click through the various choices in Operations to get 
what you want. Then convert your result to an Image frame.
