The Divining World-Part II

The cards I created below may well hold the key to your Destiny. Have a peek...

The Destiny Package

Inside you find 11 Destiny Numbers

Instructions are handprinted on the envelope itself.

(For the sake of clarity in this photograph I played around with colour and contrast.)

On each card is a Destiny Number and 6 attributes.

Sample cards

Outer Envelope

This Destiny Set was a first for me and will serve as a template for future sets. A couple of changes I intend to make are to go a little lighter on the backgrounds and to use a transfer method for the written information. The latter will cut down on the amount of time needed to produce a complete package, yet each will remain unique because of different backgrounds.

These are amazing and the outer envelope really appeals to me. A lovely olde world feel to them.

I did mine to see, and I have to say it`s pretty accurate!!

also wanted to add:intriguing.

I bet the photos, as great as they are, just don't do this set justice. This looks like something I would just want to have in my hands and peer at closely. Nice work!

I really enjoyed making these cards and, as so often happens, ideas for other card sets flowed as I made these. There will be more.

As for the readings, I too have found them pretty accurate.

Now I really need to put some attention on the photography because I've really just been winging that aspect.

Thank you all so much for your comments. I take every word to heart.

What a fascinating project. I love the style, design, and colors of this set.

Dear Curio-thanks for visiting my blog. I must say-I love your destiny cards. They are beautiful, rich, textured...full of life and meaning. How can I do a reading? I, too, believe in tarot, divination...not as a way of reading the future but as a way of choosing things now with intention and then creating the future (if that makes any sense). I really love your work-very inspiring. P.S. I am a fellow Canadian too:)
