A Virtual Postcard Arcana – the Suit of Cups

April 12th, 2014 § 0 comments § permalink

As some readers know, I’ve been putting together a Virtual Postcard Arcana made up of postcards from the website CardCow.com.

In January I posted a Major Arcana, in February, the Court Cards, in March, the Suit of Wands, and today it’s the Suit of Cups.

I wish I actually owned these postcards, but making the virtual deck is almost as fun.

A Virtual Arcana

January 13th, 2014 § 0 comments § permalink

Last week, I came across the website cardcow.com. They specialize in buying and selling vintage postcards of all sorts.

Many of the postcards featured on the site are physically available for purchase, but there’s also an option to buy image downloads, or to use them for free on your website (if you use the handy embed code they supply).

I spent some time looking around, and as usual when faced with a multitude of images, I started TarotSpotting. It was a goldmine!!

Below, you’ll find a Major Arcana I put together rather quickly. I found some great images for many of the Minor Arcana as well, but I’ll probably put them together in a future post.

I’d love to purchase these images and make actual cards with them, but for now the Virtual PostCard Arcana is what we’ve got …
