The title of this card is called Trade, Speed and Gamble - based on the words printed on the back (above). The back is made up of collaged elements and a piece of thread has been laminated over the images to create textural interest.
The front of Trade, Speed and Gamble has a drawing (ink on plastic) of a gargoyle. Gargoyles were carved on the facades of churches warning people to avoid negative behavior. A decorative printed transparency has been layered over paper pulp that has had a wooden stamp impressed into the paper. If you look very carefully above the gargoyles's head you will see the original playing card that inspired this card.
