Magic Fish

I LOVE this card by my friend, Melanie Murry!  It's just magical.  Check it out!

This is what it looks like - closed.

Then you pull the little tab on the right hand side, and you get this...

Keep pulling...
ooh--a colored fish!

This is the card - open!

Isn't it amazing?  The fish is photocopied onto a piece of clear transparency and also stamped onto a piece of white paper (you color the one on the paper).  Then in between the two fish layers, you put a piece of white card stock, so when you pull the tab out, the fish "appears" in color! SOOOO cool!

You can find the instructions here at  It's called Magic Card, under Resources, if you're ever looking for it again, or the link is gone.
