How do I find The Witcher 3 Gwent cards?

Aside from the cards that the game just gives you at the beginning, there are three main ways to collect all of the Gwent cards in The Witcher 3. The majority of the Skellige deck cards come as part of a base deck with the Blood and Wine DLC, so there are only a couple of extras that you need to hunt down.
