Hi Martin, I recently constructed your Card in Bottle effect from the Making Magic DVD. It was a lot of fun and I really enjoy your work. In the few time I've performed it, a couple of friends pointed out that the card vanish in the envelope looks a little too obvious. I'm sure you know what I mean. Do I just need some more practice or have you ever used an alternate method?

Thanks - great to see you here on the Café!

Hi Jeff,

I am always pleased to hear that people actually make the stuff on those DVD's. The Zen's envelope switch has stood the test of time - if it isn't working for you it may be that it's just not your style. Use any vanish you like but I would recommend a subtle vanish rather that a flashy one. You want the effect to creep up on the audience rather than hit them in the eye right away.

However you choose to vanish the card please do me a favor and don't use one of those little chrome boxes :)
