A By the Tide Magic Card Technique Birthday Card

Today I am going to share with you one of the cards I received at Terri's recent Technique Tuesday night.  The technique the prior month was the "Magic Card".  These are very fun to make and when you pull the tab, it's like magic!!!

I made one several months back, you can see that card here.  There is also a link to the instructions.   And there is another sample here you can see.  I used the "Sheltering Tree" stamp set to make that one.  

This technique has been around for quite some time but I had never tried it. I've received several cards using the technique and have liked what I saw but I just never took the time to do it.  And when I did finally do it, I was surprised at how little time it actually took.

The card posted here today was made by Tanya.  I like how she just stamped the sea horses on the window sheet and then stamped the ocean fern and fish using different colors.  There was no other coloring involved.  Just two different color inks. Though on the front she took some extra time to color and cut out the shells and starfish.  This card has lots of dimension to it. Plus, who doesn't love a mechanical card?  Especially when "magic" is involved!!! LOL

These are fun to make. Give it a try.  And thank you SO much for visiting today,
