I love the An­gela Poole Magic Win­dows Slide & Re­veal die set. Will it work with pho­tos?

An­gela says: Yes, but don’t use ac­tual prints, print your pho­tos onto 120gsm pa­per first. Us­ing the crop­ping cir­cle die, die-cut the photo and greet­ing to size then stick the cir­cles onto 200-220gsm card. Next, po­si­tion the Cir­cle Slider and Tab Slider dies cen­trally over photo and greet­ing and hold in place with washi tape. I’ve die-cut part of the tab again in mir­ror card to make a con­trast­ing tab. Die-cut two cham­pagne glasses us­ing the small Cir­cle Top­per die. With two strips of dou­ble-sided tape next to each other on a piece of thick card, po­si­tion the donut over the tape be­fore die-cutting. To con­struct the Magic Win­dow, thread the tab through the curved slot in the Cir­cle Slider piece and move the tab to the right. Lift each of the tab flaps and in­sert them into the cor­re­spond­ing slots be­low. As you do this you’ll no­tice a star shape ap­pear­ing in the cen­tre. Turn the Magic Win­dow over to at­tach the donut to the back and then fold in the arms of the brad and thread it through the hole from back to front. At­tach the cir­cle top­per. Back the Magic Win­dow with mirri card and add to a 200mm base card that's lay­ered with pat­terned pa­pers. Em­bel­lish the card to fin­ish. Slide the tab from left to right and the Magic Win­dow will switch be­tween the greet­ing de­sign and the pho­to­graph!
