How to do Quick Change Card Trick

The Quick Change card trick is another interesting card trick that also surprises the audience like the other card tricks played. In this trick the performer asks the spectator to choose a card from the deck without letting performer know about it. After that performer tells the spectator to place the card on the top of the deck and gives it a few shuffles, to make the spectator believe that card has lost in the deck. However, the performer has to ensure that the card selected by the spectator remains at the top while the deck is shuffled. Now applying the double lift trick, performer picks two cards from the top of the deck such that they are perfectly squared and the spectator does not notice they are two cards. With the snap of fingers, performer quickly reveals spectator’s card.
