You could do Card in Orange I suppose, but you really need either a signature or torn corner for that, and you don't want to run your gimmicked card each time you do the trick.

It would be amusing to flick a 'diamond' off of the card via a Han Ping Chein sort of action as you did the change. Hopefully it would appear the five changed into a 'four' because you knocked the center diamond off and into physical reality.
