Magic Card Depth


#1

This is a first attempt at cutting through a number of magic cards to achieve a 3D depth effect. I used Inkscape to trace the image of the card and bashed up a quick jig to hold the cards in place while cutting.

This was a quick-n-dirty job. The resukts could be improved with some neatness!

That’s a cool idea. Got more pics from other angles?


#3

tried to add a short video showing it tilted from side to side, but file size was too big…


#4

Been there. I’ve had to upload mine to YouTube.


#5

how funny - I’ve looked at that post before! cool work!


#6

I am wondering why you needed multiple Magic cards as one card could provide all the parts and the rest could regular cardboard.


#7

was most the alignment from the jig or from the center camera?


#8

That’s a really neat idea. Are you going to frame the cards somehow? I guess you could use the GF to make a frame as well.


#9

Or, if you don’t have several of the same card, you could maybe copy and print some layers?

It’d probably look best with the real deal though. Really cool.

Ahh I missed that they were all the same card but would still want to use the cut out pieces in the next layer down…

I have an old stack of MTG cards that I dug out just for this task. :smiley:

What a neat effect! :grinning:
