I like how my inbox icon lights up in green when I have new messages or new games from friends; but I'm not interested in trading cards, and it annoys me when after each gaming session I get a bunch and the inbox lights up.

Is there a way I can prevent the inbox alert from appearing for new trading cards?

No, there is currently no way to disable those. Neither the Steam Client nor the Website or Enhanced Steam have this capability at the moment.

No you cant not without disabling all notifications altogether.
