A Card in Flight!
Effect: After having a card selected, the performer drops the deck into a hat. Asking the person how many spots were on the noted card, the performer reaches into the hat and pretends to take out that many number of spots and flips them away. The spectator is now asked to remove the deck and see if his card is there, but it has vanished! Another spectator raises the window curtain and, astonishingly enough, the selected card is seen to be sticking to the outside window looking in!!
If at home steal a card from a deck - 2 of spades and 2 of clubs. Go outside and plant the 2 of spades on the window looking in. Fake the club card by sticking to it two small triangles of black paper with saliva. These pieces, over the club pips, turn them into spade spots. Add this card to the deck upon your return and force it any way you please but don't let the spectator look at it himself. Take it from him/her and step back, holding the card so all but you can see the face of it. This little distance prevents a close inspection, but at three feet the card is certainly a spade. Drop the card on the deck and give it an overhand shuffle which leaves the fake 2 of spades on the bottom. Drop the deck into the hat face up and ask the number of spots on the chosen card. Reach in, and take the pieces of paper, roll them into three balls in your fingers and flick them away, one at a time. Take the deck out, face down, and tell the spectator to find his/her card. It's, of course, gone and you are ready for the finale with the card being found looking in through the window.
