Magic Card Tutorial

Inspired by this Magic Card video, I wanted to try this technique out.  
Here's my version of it using the Jar of Love stamp set and the Everyday Jar Framelits.  The first picture is the card insert inside and the second picture is the card insert pulled out, revealing the hidden picture.  Cool, right?
First I folded the 12x12 By the Shore DSP (Decorative Series Paper) in half and cut out 2 of the Mini Treat Bags.  I could get 2 per sheet.  This is what the pieces look like, see how they are opposites?  You want to score about 1/8" from the score you get from the Framelits.
 Then, using the Layering Ovals, I cut out a window on one of the sheets.
 Using the Foam Strips, I cut them to fit the sides of the paper.  See how one paper is flipped over?
 Then, layer them on each other so the tops match.
 See how the foam strips fit together?  That's so the double layered card insert can fit.
To make the insert, cut a window sheet and a piece of Whisper White both at 3-1/8" x 5," then using Washi Tape, adhere them together at the top.  You first stamp the bottom image (jar outline, words, and fish).  On the front, only stamp the jar outline in Staz On Black ink while lining it up with the first outline on the bottom image.
Insert it into the card, separating the front into the front slot and the paper to the back slot.  The card closed will look like this:
 When you pull the tab, you will reveal the hidden image on the bottom card...MAGIC!!
Here's another version using the Thoughtful Branches stamp set.
 I used Cherry Cobbler, Crushed Curry and Early Espresso markers and "thumped" them on the stamp to randomize the trees.
 Here is a close up of the inside card.

Thank you for checking in!
