When operating on multiple objects like you are doing, it's usually 
best to group the fields, then hide/show the group! Then you don't have 
to loop through all of them.

BTW using "hide field x" and "show field x" is a good shortcut for "set 
the visible of field x"

Maybe you should show the card with a dissolve? I haven't used the 
transition effects much myself.
