A mini-stripey in trading card format ready to trade with an artist who visited the studio earlier this week and was telling me about them. From

“Artist Trading Cards are miniature works of art created on 2.5 x 3.5 inch card stock. They are originals, small editions and, most importantly, self-produced. Anybody can produce them.The idea is that you trade them with other people who produce cards. It is important that you meet other people in person to trade – i.e. it is ok to trade by mail or to participate in editions but the main purpose of this performance is the trading session and the personal meeting.”

With the smaller size I’ve cut the strips narrower to get a decent number across the width. The finished card is next to a ‘normal’ sized piece for comparison.
