Collecting real flowers has become a way of life for
us. We enjoy finding where and when the wildflowers
grow. We also cultivate flowers for harvesting in our
hand-watered garden . We study books so we know the names of all the flowers.
Some flowering plants, which are classified as “weeds,” are beautiful
and useful to us.
With the hand-picked, pressed and dried, and carefully stored flowers, we create
greeting cards all year long. We do not charge for the time involved because
we have no way of calculating what that would be. Our flower cards have become
our trademark industry!
There are two kinds of flower cards. Those cards with REAL flowers are originals…unique,
unrepeatable, and often purchased to be framed or used as gifts. We have also
discovered a new way to preserve the real flower cards…by printing
them. These cards are color prints of the original real flower cards. These
viewed here and purchased by order numbers. We continue to add new printed
cards so return to our Website often to see new designs.
The real flowers are mounted on card stock paper and come with envelopes.
They are laminated so the flowers are preserved. The cards are blank inside.
If you order real flower cards, we will send you a selection from our available
The printed flower cards are on ultra-glossy, photo-quality paper. The cards
are blank inside. The cards are 4-½” by 6-¼” in
size and come with white envelopes. Sets of 6 cards or more come in a handy
The Heart cards are 5” x 7” and come with white envelopes. They
are blank inside. The words (“Love” “Peace” and “Joy”)
on the outside of the cards are printed from the original calligraphy work
of Sister M. Beverly. There are 4 different heart designs.
Each printed flower card has the name of the flower(s) used in the design
shown on the back cover. It also has a small paragraph identifying Marymount
Hermitage and us. These printed flower cards are printed from the original
flower card. As the flowers fade, the card is discontinued. So the cards, like
the original flowers, are always fresh and new.
Our name and copyright notice viewed on the front of each card in the gift
shop does not appear on the actual card.
Cards may appear to have speckles on them. These are actually part of the
design of the original card paper and not printing defects. As you will see,
our printer does a superb job of reproducing the minute details in the card
May God the Father and Creator be praised in all we do in His Name.
