This is my first spinner card! My dad is a handyman, and he loves tools and woodworking. I made this card for him for Father's Day, and put a Home Depot gift card inside. I thought it's be cute to make it look like a saw was cutting through the wood as it goes back and forth. I used tan paper for the wood, then dragged a sponge with Close to Cocoa ink accross it to make it look like stained wood. I then added some marks on it using the 'Close to Cocoa' marker. I drew the pattern for the saw blade, cut it out by hand, then pressed silver ink over it to make it shine like a real one. I added a brad to the middle as a finishing touch in making it look closer to a real saw blade.

I think this is one of the neatest masculine cards I've seen yet..... what a smarty pants you are!!! Awesome idea....and your "wood" bg really looks like wood!! I know that's not easy... I tried making some fence posts with WW punch, course I was having to use a blender pen since I don't have the markers. You did a great job!!!
