For this project, puppies or butterflies were not even on the list of "possibilities". That's just not me. So...it was Crayons to the rescue! Now THAT'S me. I picked up this cute image from A Day For Daisies specifically with this card in mind.
Some months back, I saw a tutorial on a "magic window" card and thought it was SO COOL that I filed it away in my idea arsenal for future use...someday, somewhere, somehow. So cool.
Here is my version of the Magic Card
The way it works is there is a black and white image on the front of the card...as you pull up on the tab, it magically transforms into a full-color image as it pops out the top of the card. I used black brads as the "stoppers" on the top of my card to prevent the image from sliding completely out. I colored the image in Photoshop--decided to give my colored pencils a day off.
Here is a good tutorial video by Crystal Alves-Tusim on how to do it.
