As many of you know the Steam Summer Sale is going on and with it you can earn Summer Getaway Trading Cards which reward badges, backgrounds, emoticons and other rewards when a set has been crafted. I have seen all ten Summer Getaway Trading Cards so I thought I would show them off in all their glory. I have also added a little guide on how you get trading cards and what the Summer Getaway Trading Cards are.

How to I earn Steam Summer Getaway trading cards?
From store.steampowered.com: “Normally you would start a trading card set by playing a game. Since in this case the sale itself is the game, here are the ways you can get Summer Getaway cards:”
Craft a game badge
Starting 3rd July, crafting a game badge earned you a “mystery card” rather than a coupon. These mystery cards are now Summer Getaway cards. So if you crafted a badge in the last week, you’re already ahead of the game. During the sale, each game badge you craft will get you a Summer Getaway trading card.
Make a purchase
As an additional reward for purchasing, for every $10 spent during the sale you’ll get a Summer Getaway trading card.
Vote in the Community’s Choice
If you’re Steam Level 5 and above, you’ll get a card every third time you vote for the Community’s Choice Flash Sale.
Trade for them
Make trades with your friends.
Buy them from the Community Market
Sell the cards you don’t need and buy the ones you do with other Steam Community members (easiest way to get cards). If you aren’t interested in badge-crafting, you can also turn the cards into Steam Wallet funds to buy more games.
What do I get when I craft a badge?
Crafting the Summer Getaway badge (and other game badges) earns you tradable items like emoticons to use in chats or discussions and backgrounds to use on your profile. You can collect the set of cards five times to level up your Summer Getaway badge and earn more items. Each time you craft a badge you also earn XP which progresses you towards the next Steam Level.
