How to Transform One Card into Another. In this trick, the spectator chooses a card
and returns it to the deck. The magician then transforms the bottom card
of the deck into the chosen card. You will need A fresh deck of cards and lots
of practice. Step 1. Have a spectator choose a card, memorize it,
and return it to the deck. Step 2. Mark where they returned the card by using
your pinky to create a slight space over it. Step 3. Do a quick shuffle, secretly bringing their
card to the top. Step 4. As you chatter, begin to overhand side-shuffle
the deck. Bring their card to the bottom by sliding
it off alone in the first cut. Step 5. Shuffle again, pulling off the top card, and
placing it at the bottom of the deck. The chosen card is now the second card from
the bottom. Make sure you don’t let anyone see the deck’s
bottom card as you shuffle. Step 6. Turn over the deck and show the spectator
the bottom card. Ask them if it is theirs. They will say no. This is a good time to distract your audience
a little. Start rubbing the deck and ask them if they’re
sure. Step 7. Now here’s the tricky part: While your audience
is distracted, secretly slide the bottom card forward about an inch with the heel of your
hand. In the next motion, slide the second-to-bottom
card, the spectator’s chosen card, back with the heel of your hand. Make sure nobody sees it! Step 8. Now swiftly push down with the heel of your
hand on the second-to-bottom card — it will pop up and over the bottom card. Move your hands and voila – the spectator’s
card has magically appeared on top of the deck. Did you know The late magician Dai Vernon
became known as “the man who fooled Houdini” after he performed a card trick seven times
without Houdini figuring it out.
