With three layers of materials and a little thinking you can create a spinning wheel card that fits almost any need. I wanted a unique way to describe what I do for my business card, but quickly realized I could use the same format to create a fun and interesting card to describe my amazing mother!
For a head-start, I've included the Adobe Illustrator file, but any vector drawing program has what you need to create this project to your own specifications.
The materials shown include a 2mm single-ply bamboo and a slightly thinner press board. 2mm is the upper limit on thickness in my opinion, but much thinner and it begins to feel fragile. Obviously with modifications it could be made out of many different materials. It could also be made using less "high tech" methods.

If you have Adobe Illustrator, the file attached will give you a head start on your own creation. I start by creating a rectangle the the size I want-in this case 2" x 3.5" for a business card. Then I design the top layer. I Add each layer's elements on one at a time until I have an image that looks like the one above.
