Tarot of the Velvet Moon: A Bold, Sharp Tarot Deck in a Miniature Size
Measuring 2.5 x 3 inches, this miniature tarot deck is filled with the daily dramas and hidden magic of forest friends and their occasional human visitors. The Tarot of the Velvet moon is illustrated in striking jewel-toned imagery and flooded with the subtle shimmer of metallic gold ink, creating an elegant but subdued luster. It is framed with holographic gold edges and tucked into a sturdy cardboard magnetic box.

Because the design required extreme precision, I opted for metallic ink instead of foiling on each of the cards. Because foiling is hand stamped, that means we can't guarantee the exact placement of the stamps. Metallic ink does not have the mirror finish that stamping does, but is perfectly precise so we can layer ink over the exact pixels we want. It has a subtle sheen, like tiny flecks of glitter, which gives the card a more elegant look that I ended up falling in love with, especially on cards with large floods of ink.
My first tarot deck was a miniature, and was about this size. I wanted to invoke some of the nostalgia from those early memories I had with tarot by creating this deck. Every reading had a sense of wonder and mystery, I knew nothing but was filled with curiosity. Back then, tarot was something that was for me, the stuff of fairy tales - something fantastical and dream-like, but also enigmatic and cryptic. I chose dark, moody colors to heighten the sense of the unknown, alongside what I feel is quite whimsical imagery to create my first miniature tarot deck.
