Another Magic Card

Hello my friends! I'm super excited today. I was asked to be a quest designer for Scrapping 4 Fun Challenges. It is an awesome opportunity and I couldn't say no. Their theme is Anything goes with stamped image. This is easy :)

Sentiment: "Most beautiful moments in life often comes as a surprise"

I told you few weeks ago that I show you one more magic card. This one is improved and works much better then my first magic card. You can find lots of guides for Magic card but I made some modifications. I struggled with my first card to pull the tag out and it was difficult to push it back in. So I added strips of heavy cardstock to the edges to give the tag some room to slide in and out. It works perfectly. I made a sort of template to help you understand better what I'm trying to say.

I used darling Rocco with Roses as the main image. He is stamped to the cardstock with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink and colored with Promarkers and Flexmarkers. Sentiment was computer generated. Rocco is stamped to the acetate with Black StazOn.
Then you watch my template you see that the cardstock with stamped image is cut in funny shape at the bottom. I like it because then you pull the tag it gives you an illusion that the tag is with same width 'til the end.

Lots of happiness and strong helth

Magic cards are so much fun and easy to make. I added an easel to behind the card to help it stand.

I didn't made a photo of it but the message for the receiver was back side of the tag.  I made this card for my neighbour who is my dog best friend. He takes my dog to a long walk every day. He loves animals So I thought Rocco is perfect for him. Hi was amazed then he saw this card and didn't understand how can a black and white image change to colored image. After seeing his reaction I love Magic cards even more :)
