As promised, I have completed a full video tutorial for the Parcel Pop-up Magic Card. The video shows two versions of the card - one using our penguin die from the Winter Animals set, and one using the Percy Snow Angel rubber stamp from Riley and Company. Both cards also feature the Flap and Closure die set.
Learn how to make this fun self-sliding pop-up magic card by watching the full video:
When closed, these bottom-fold clear-front magnetic-closure cards measure 4.25" x 5" and can be mailed easily in an A2 envelope.
Open the cards to perform the magic trick. The image slides up and out of the frame and "magically" turns to color.
Traditionally a magic card features an instruction for the user to pull somewhere to slide the items together, but with this version, the Parcel Pop-up die set is doing the sliding as the card is opened.
Because the greeting stamp is taller than my hidden space above each penguin, the "m" of Merry Christmas was showing in the closed position. To disguise it, I added embellishments to the frames in the upper left corner that would hide the "m" when the card is closed. Make sure if you have items extending into the frame that you don't create a catch point for the transparency. Try bending the overhanging items up away from the frame if you need to adjust.
Here are two other versions of the Parcel Pop-up Magic card.

Ready to give this card a try? Here are the products used in the penguin cards. I used older papers from my stash (Bo Bunny for the snowflakes and CI for the dots) so you'll want to shop your own stash for papers.
