Apparently link two cards in an ad hoc impromptu appearing fashion.
Effect: You take two cards and openly tear from each two rectangular windows. This leaves a frame and a center beam in each card. Then you magically link them at the center beam. At the end you separate them again and hand out both cards as souvenirs. The cards will show no tear in the center beam or around the frame. Everybody will wonder how you were able to link them. There is no secret exchange of cards. The two cards you start with are the two cards you end with.
This effect is best done in an off-hand impromptu setting where you do not ponder too long during the linked phase. You rip, link, show, unlink, and handout the souvenirs.
You will need to prepare one card, which will take you about one minute to do.
