I'd like to try my hand at dried flower stationery- any tips for me?

Cards # 7 and # 8, paper flowers
As I’ve been taking photos of cards and envelopes I created, I realized that they are not so intricate to require multiple pictures of each one for a single blog post. So here are two variations on the theme of flowers.
I’ve surely posted more daffodil photos and references during the past year than any other flower: this is another thank-you note with a catalogue cut-out and a cheerful hand-made envelope. I planted 125 flower bulbs last fall, with the help of Mr. Spice, and have been grinning like a fool every time I come out of the house or back from work and see the blossoms! Of course, more photos have been snapped, for future cards!
I received a great deal of help with this next card, as four-footed friends can’t resist some string! I’ve been saving a map of Prague for about 20 years, and finally decided that it was ok to cut it up and use as an envelope. I have PAID in the past for new envelopes made from old maps! I’m pleased with the results, using (yet again) completely unrelated paper for the envelope liner.
