I bought the Sacred Rebels Oracle Deck because I feel in love with the card illustrations. However, when I got them home and held the deck in my hands, they felt too big. It was awkward shuffling them. The borders were making it difficult for me to connect with the cards as well. I knew that I had to modify the deck but was nervous about cutting them because I’d never done it before.
It actually turned out to be much easier than I thought. I’m so glad I ended up trimming the borders and inking the edges. I ended up really bonding with the deck by the end of the modification. Simply giving each card individual attention while trimming and inking, made me connect with each one in a way I had never connected before. Now I find myself looking to see which of my other decks would benefit from a little modifying as well. Check out the quick video above to see how I did it.
