Anyhow, I cut the image and embossed and run an ink pad over the handle and added mirror card for the actual cutting piece, I added some ink over the edge of the saw for a bit of aging. After doing all this I thought it too small for a card on it's own, even though I had made it larger.
I didn't know how I was going to use it and it took me over 2 days to put this together! Yep! 2 days, with a lots of trying and rejecting, I added it to a DL size card and I looked through a paper pad and found one paper that I liked. I dry embossed it and added a pen line to make a shadow under each line. I die cut the sentiment matching the lines of the paper and cut 4 layers of white card to add a little lightness to the sentiment. Voila card finished - but I was still not satisfied! so I added a printed sentiment inside the saw, which can be lifted before opening the inside and seeing the birthday greeting.

Here you can see the embossing and what looks like a shadow, I'm quite pleased with it.
this is the saying inside the saw itself.
