Anyone who has read my blog for any length of time knows I don't celebrate Halloween. So each year I struggle when it comes to this season as to what I will share. I was thankful that this year the MFP theme was Trick or Treat. I decided to share with you cards that do a TRICK. My fellow designer and good friend Shirley will be doing the TREAT part. A win win.
I decided first to show you a card that is called a magic coloring card. It is called this because it looks like it colors itself. Here are some photos of it. Closed/Opened

 But photos alone don't do justice to the "TRICK" so here is a short video clip showing how it looks.


It is a lot of fun, even if it is a bit challenging and time consuming. It is a definite wow factor for the recipient. I hope you enjoyed seeing it

Make sure you come back tomorrow for another fun TRICK card.


  1. MariLynn, I just love this! Now, I'm curious about what Shirley has on her blog!

  2. Love your fun card and video. Hugz

  3. This is so cute and creative. I was thinking about this card when you mentioned your were doing trick cards. I only made one and it was designed by a member of a stamp club I belonged to. You sure did a great job on it and thanks for showing how it works.

  4. Beautiful Fall colors for a non Halloween Card, Marilynn.

  5. Love that technique! Super fun surprise when you pull up the tab.

  6. Very creative; love the technique.

  7. This was so fun and creative, love the trick part. I have been wanting to do a card like this, thanks for the inspiration.

  8. This is a beautiful card and great technique!

  9. Nice job - I did one of these awhile back and enjoyed making it - you did a great job!

  10. What fun! Now I have to watch the tutorial on how to do this technique! Lovely card too!

  11. I love this magic coloring card. It's such a treat to receive a card that moves, IMHO. I love them.
