Although the Devant method is spectacular (I've been doing it since high school) it cannot be done with jumbo cards as per the original query by Rich 152.

Re: Platform Cards Across

You might consider "The Triangle" from Maskelyne and Devant's "Our Magic". An updated variation is Steinmeyer's "Two-Sided Triangle" from his "Device and Illusion".
Adapting them to jumbo cards could probably be done.
Good luck!
