I love the tarot. I love to read the tarot (when I find time), I love the symbolism, the art and the mystery of it. I have always wanted, and even tried a few times, to create my own deck and I thought this would be a great way to see that to fruition!

Swap details:

We will be crafting one 4x6 tarot card of your partners choice. Leave the back of the card blank (except for 'artist info').

Lets stick to the Universal Rider-Waite deck for card meanings/symbolism. Not to limit your meanings but there are a million different decks out there and this one is the most well-known/universal of the bunch.

All crafting medias should be fine as long as you can use the card, unless your partner says otherwise. I personally would like to use my deck but who knows you might want to frame yours!


A regular size greeting card envelope should be big enough to fit your card but be sure to put it in between some thicker pieces of card stock or cardboard so that it doesn't get ruined during the shipping process (remember the extra weight may change the shipping price slightly).

Please put your 'artist info' on the back of the card. Twenty years from now we want to know who made such a beautiful card!


some helpful websites to get you in the mood!

http://www.aeclectic.net/tarot/   this site has the best overall listing and 'samples' of different cards. Lots of ideas!

OK- So a few of you mentioned that you might like to do more than one. I put it on the questionnaire a little late so if the question isn't on yours please talk to your partner about how many you would like to swap and I will leave it up to you. The rules say only one card is needed so by that standard if someone says they are going to make three but you only receive one then I have to give positive feedback. Also, keep in mind that I am going to make this an Ongoing Swap when this one is finished-- I just wanted to get one swap that I actually organized under my belt first before I got all crazy!

Sent my questionnaire. Quick question, would it be possible to take on multiple partners and therefore get multiple cards?

We are pretty, we are smart, we've got crafting in the heart.
