About Steam Trading Cards
By spending time playing the game, every player will earn four random card drops of the eight available cards. By trading cards with other players and opening booster packs, a complete set can be 'crafted' into a badge earning XP to increase a player's Steam Level and additional community items to feature on the user's profile.
Each trading card is also available in the rare 'foil' variety.

Collecting a full set of regular trading cards provides the option to craft them into a badge, which is untradable but provides XP points and can be featured on your player profile.
Crafting multiple sets of cards upgrades your badge level, producing increasing quantities of XP.
Crafting a set of rare foil cards produces the special foil badge.
|Level 1||Level 2||Level 3||Level 4||Level 5||Foil Badge|
|Clay Idol||Worn Idol||Dinged Idol||Polished Idol||Shining Idol||Crystal Skull|
Crafting a set of cards into a badge also produces a random emoticon to use in chat and a random background to feature on your steam Profile. Both of these items are tradable and marketable.
If none of your friends play Spelunky, good places to find trading partners include:
Alternatively, one can pay a small amount of money from their steam wallet to purchase the cards on the Steam Community Market.
