I saw a Chinese (or Japanese?) magician in a video (I think it was a trick where the card at the end arrived in a wine bottle).
In his routine he used a card case (bicycle). In that card case was another (smaller) card case, etc. It was a nest of 5 or 6 card cases who fitted in each other. In the smallest case there was a folded card.
Does anyone know where you can get such a "nest" of card cases? (bicycle)

I have found the video clip back on YouTube.

Since nobody reacts and thus seems not to know of such card cases, I assume he made the card cases himself.

The magician is Cyril Takayama of Japan, and yes, he probably made the card cases himself, as you can, too. Carefully peel a card case open and flatten it. Scan in the card case to your computer and print out scans at various sizes on card stock or matte finish photo paper. Cut out your scanned card stock cases and reassemble.

Photoshop will be indeed the solution.
With the empty bicycle cases that you can buy it is easy. They come allready unfolded and only glued on one side.
Thanks for the hint.
