Magic Card

Quite some time ago, Jill did a video for Sparkle N Sprinkle  showing how to do a Magic Card.  It's from Dec. 2009 so you'll have to scroll down a bit.   I thought it was time to dust off my notes and try one.   It's quite a fun little card and not too difficult.
I decided to copy another card that Jill had done, as it was just too cute, using Stamp Set 360 - Pigs on Parade from Sparkle N Sprinkle.  Hope you like it.

This is what it looks like from the outside.  I used a small die cut to make the flower.  First I cut a piece of Super Adhesive Sheet and attached it to a piece of white cardstock for support.  I then used the die cut, removed the protective covering from the top side, attached a metallic disc and then covered the rest with Dazzling Rose glitter.

If you pull on the top tab, VOILA the magic happens and it looks like this!

Check out the video to see how it happens!   There's also a video on Splitcoast Stampers that shows a different way to make the base card.  The end result is the same, but this appeared a little easier to me.
 If you check out my tabs on the top, I've added a little tutorial on how I created this one :)

Hope you enjoyed my little bit of magic.



  1. This is so cool, Brenda! Love your magic wand siggy. I haven't made one of these cards yet. Cute little piggy. I know she's in an inner tube, but something about the color reveal reminds me of Kermit the Frog's PIGS IN SPACE. LOL Thanks for sharing!

  2. Great job Brenda....these cards are soooo fun and amazing:)

  3. That's another one that I bought the supplies for eons ago and still haven't done! So many techniques, so little time! Love the flower idea with the sticky paper - great card!

  4. I've never tried this one...thanks for the link to the tutorial! Your pig is adorable!

  5. I love this little pig. He is definitely on my want list. I love this technique. I need to go watch the video.


I love hearing your comments - thank you!
