Greeting cards with a difference. Greeting cards by Growing Paper Growing Paper produces handmade cards with a twist: the paper used for the greeting cards is embedded with flower seeds. So, you can plant your card in a sunny spot, water it and watch your written words come to life. The handmade paper is made from waste paper that’s been re-processed.
