About

About 20 years ago, before I even started as a graphic designer, I was introduced to my first deck of Tarot cards by my brother Robert (thank you, Robert!) -- this led me to Oracle Cards followed by Lenormand Cards, and I realised that I could use my graphic design skills and love of fantasy art combined with my love of oracle cards to create a cartomancy deck for the new millennium.

This will be my first Kickstarter-backed campaign, but I thought it would be the best way to ensure that these beautiful cards are able to be produced, and that when they are, they’ll fall into the hands of the beautiful people who love them as much as I do. I have other ideas for similar projects, and I hope that this will be only the start of many more creations.

In addition to thanking my brother Robert for introducing me to Tarot, I also wish to thank my mother Barbara. She is now in spirit, but she was the inspiration for my own spiritual journey, as well as for creating this card deck. This deck is created in her honor.  And lastly, Maria Krystyna Medium & Psychic. Thank you for your expert wisdom of Lenormand and psychic guidance with getting the images just right.

The Golden Light Lenormand Card Deck contains the standard 36 images that you’re used to seeing with Lenormand readings, but reimagined for the new millennium and beyond.  

I have truly loved working on this deck in intricate detail and I can't wait to present this to you.

The Golden Light Lenormand deck invites you into an energetic realm, beckoning you to enter and explore.  Immerse yourself in the beautiful scenes. Sink into the colours and textures. It doesn't matter if you are new to Lenormand or a seasoned reader - these cards will evoke your intuition! 

You'll find a mixture of traditional lenormand imagery as well as intricate features. My primary aim has been to create the feeling of each card this deck is designed to be both easy to read and highly relatable. This has resulted in colourful based digitally enhanced images, as well as mystical elements. 

I embarked on this project in January 2018. Even before the deck had a title, this deck emerged as a theme in the artwork as well as the creative process. I played with different styles and concepts.  The deck came forward organically, with the result more magical, beautiful and poignant that I imagined. 

The deck will come with an accompanying guidebook inserted into the magnetic clasp box. You will form your own connection to these cards, but the guidebook will offer insight, actions as well as affirmations to help you bond and resonate with this unique deck and use it in everyday life.

Every card includes the name of the card to prompt the reader of the card's meaning. This is helpful if you are new to reading Lenormand cards.  

The magic continues with a shiny, golden gilded edge card. The deck will come in a solid cardboard box with gold foil and a magnet closure.

Each card has been painstakingly digitally enhanced by me, and I hope that you will find beauty and peace in their illustrations and meanings, and that you can stare at each image for hours, finding a new meaning or symbol every single time.

Originating in the late 18th century, Lenormand Cards have retained their fortune-telling reputation, never being recognised as a form of fortune telling that reaches into the higher spiritual planes.  It is a straightforward, easy to use, honest method of having a glimpse into the world around you. Lenormand gives you specific information you can use to with real life, everyday problems.

You can see the cards in detail here.


I'm planning on publishing a digital guidebook to accompany the deck. If the guidebook stretch goal is reached, every backer who backs a deck will receive a free digital guidebook as well. 

I literally cannot complete this deck without you! Your support here on Kickstarter is what makes this deck possible! 

I can't thank you enough for supporting this project!

I have selected a printer and received quotes. I've also estimated how much funding needed for printing and shipping decks to us from our overseas printer, packaging materials, the various rewards for Kickstarter backers, and other miscellaneous costs associated with producing a lenormand deck independently. 

Each card will have a shiny gilded gold edge. The deck will come in a solid cardboard box with gold foil and magnet closure.

  • Size and numbers: 70×100mm, 36 cards/deck 
  • Paper material: 350gsm

** UPDATE: WISHING COIN

This is the design of the Divination Coin with a 'YES' and 'NO' option.

I am waiting on a photo of the coin, and will update once I can share it with you :)

SPECS

Dia: 35mm, thickness 2.5mm with plastic box package

Color: 999 gold plated (24 karat gold plated)

The coin will stay shiny and will not rust or tarnish

**UPDATE: INTERNATIONAL SHIPPING

In Australia, international postage is not the most economical country to post from, unfortunately. The average minimum cost for international shipping is $45.55 AUD for example -  so I have rounded the costs to $40.

I have not included the packaging, labelling or insurance within this shipping cost and wanted to ensure the package arrived to you in a timely fashion and securely. 

It will be:

  • Fast shipping
  • Trackable 
  • Insured 
  • Signature on delivery

Risks and challenges

The deck is already finished. The book is mostly finished. The only thing I have yet to design is the booklet.
I hope that there are minimum risks associated with this project.

I have printers at the ready and expect no delays in shipping. However, unexpected delays with the printing, shipping or creative processes are a possibility. I will do what I can to ensure things run smoothly, but sometimes things are out of my control. Mercury goes retrograde, things sometimes take longer than we hope they will!

I will strive to keep things efficient as possible, and definitely keep all backers informed of the status!
