"Kaartjes" also translates as "cards" in English. Otherwise, how would you translate "my (little) cards" (as in business cards) into Dutch?

The full word for business card is "visitekaartje" but "kaartje" is also used. "Een kaartje" without context I would translate as a ticket.

You're absolutely right! 'Kaart' is a word which can translate to ticket, card, and map. You'll understand why Dutch people often use 'kaart' in a compound (for example 'toegangskaart' = ticket, 'spelkaarten' = playing cards, 'landkaart' = map) ;-)

And "menukaart" = menu (in a restaurant).
