Magic Card Well, Just Optical Illusion

I just recently saw how a magic card works and was so intrigued.  The image is black and white but when you pull on it, it magically appears colored!  This is probably old school for you, but I saw this light bulb image and thought is would work perfectly into a magic card.

I wanted the outside to be kinda plain so it would be more dramatical when you opened it.  I used white embossing powder to create this front cover.  I am playing with Catch Bug Bingo and used not designer paper, a button and a sentiment.

Now you pull on the tab and a colored image appears magically!

How fun is this?

  11. I like the button and bakers twine on the tab . It might make it easier for the recipient to notice that he/she should "pull here" to see the magic ! Thanks for stopping by my blog :)
