Here are  56 Minor Arcana cards.  I choose the suits images according to my Logo….

well not so much Wands suit…

Tarot Cards

I’ve always had a fixation for tarot cards. I don’t necessarily believe in magic behind them and I don’t think they are voodoo either . I’ve always been in love with the images on the cards.

Some cards have a magnificent Medieval looking pictures some have engraving . The card tells show you history of art. Originally tarot cards were a game call ” Tarocchini”… Matter of fact the cards look very much like the Italian playing cards.

So I have decided to make my own tarot cards. I have the Major Arcana done …Now I to get the Minor Arcana done. I’ll be hoping that I’ll have this all done by July  2017 .

I’ll be selling them in beautiful wood boxes there have personalize scratchboard on top or rustic Burlap bags ….something for everyone……So  stay tuned.:)
