These Story and Fortune Cards are a teaser selection of a series of cards that work in pairs to illustrate complex meanings. They can be used for a fun storytelling exercise, or for fortune telling in a similar way to that of a Lenormand deck. The words help the reader decipher the combined meaning that a pair of cards create.

The Key and the Herald card could be read as unlocking (or opening) a letter.

The Herald and the Tree card could be read as news about growth. This is a pretty straight forward one.
