MAGIC CARD by Brenda Smalle




Double sided cardstock:   1 piece   11 3/4 x 5 1/4   -  Score at 3 3/4  -  7 1/2  -  11 1/4

White cardstock for image :   1  piece    5 1/2 x 3 1/2

Cardstock:  1  piece  3 1/2” x 1”

Die for cutting window

Black Staz-on Ink for stamping on Acetate

Black ink for stamping image on white CS   -   do not use Staz-on if coloring with Copics

or other alcohol markers

Stamp positioner

Red-liner tape


 Score your base card and fold all score lines inward.

Cut your window in the center section nearer the top.

Add strip of red-liner tape to outside edge of flap (do not remove liner yet


Stamp image and phrase on white cardstock piece.  You can lay the cardstock under the window and stamp that way  -  or you can lay the cardstock under the window and lightly draw around the circle with a pencil (erase after stamping).  Stamp the phrase also.

Color you image.

Attach a strip of red-liner tape across the very top of the image panel.  Attach the acetate panel to it.

Using the stamp positioner  -  line up your image so it matches the image on the white cardstock & stamp the image again onto the acetate using the Staz-on Ink.

 Attach another strip of red-liner tape across the top of the acetate panel.

Score the 3 1/2" x 1" piece of cardstock at 1/2"and fold  -  attach to the front of the "magic panel"  -  then add another piece of tape (red-liner or regular) to the back of the flap and fold over to attach to the back of the panel.  This little piece is your "pull piece" and also covers up the tape.

Remove the liner from the flap on your base card and fold your panels inward.


Attach the “flap” to the inside of the panels so that your card is now flat.
