Abracadabra!

Ever since I saw one of these “magic cards”, I knew that I had to make one. I love the idea that it starts out looking monotone and simple, then you pull the flap and COLOR!

It’s actually fairly simple to make. The key is your tools. I used the Stamparatus to set the positioning of the stamp on the card. The window was cut out with the stitched rectangles. Then the girl was stamped on the back flap of the card. She was colored with the blends listed below. I glued a piece of highland heather cardstock to the back of the card to cover where the blends bled through.

Flap was cut and glued into the card. Acetate was fixed to the card opening and stamped with stazon. I used a hole punch for the tab and slipped some sparkly twine through it.
