Huh, that might work better than my sketch book paper.
Testing out ideas and re-purposing a box of business cards that I don't need. LOL
Eventually all this "goofing around" will be used on an actual map.
Yeah, it held up pretty nicely. I dropped the card in the sink full of water and let it soak a couple minutes and then it stuck down on the board I use without any taping whatsoever.
I started this with a wash and then used a ball point pen to lightly draw in some hills and stuff which I then painted over with darker colors. All in all, it worked surprisingly well.
What a great idea Typical excellent thought process and execution Jax
Even if I am correct, I would still advise you to follow your heart. This whole Cartographers Guild thing, it seems to me, is more about passion and skill and learning new techniques than it is about definitions and rules.

Nice idea to re-purpose the cards.
Too bad you could not re-purpose something larger!
Its a beautiful little piece of art.
