  • Card Trick of the Week 6

    Posted on March 6, 2008 by chris ballinger

    The Rising Card

    Creepy, visual card magic that is simply impossible. The effect: A card is selected and lost in the pack. Slowly one card rises from the middle of the deck and is shown to be the spectator's card. Depending on which version of the trick you use, it can be done with the deck in the performer's hand, the spectator's hand, or leaning up against something.

     

     

    We carry two versions of this effect at the store: the Rising Card and Kundalini Rising. There are also several other handlings in print that use sleight of hand exclusively. The advantage of using a clever gimmick in this case is that the effect can be done while the cards are not being held by the magician.

    We've been asked many times what the difference is between Kundalini Rising and the Rising Card. So here it goes:

    The Rising Card is self working. The cards can be fanned out and freely shown, they can be cut, but they can not be thoroughly examined by the spectator.

    Kundalini Rising, on the other hand, is not self working; it takes some sleights and practice. Kundalini Rising also offers the ability to perform the effect with a borrowed deck.
