The usual advice is to remember to align grains and equalize the amount
of material on the two sides of the board to control shrinkage. In any
case I think that you should try things out first.
1) Use something sturdier than board for the core. I have used
2) Don't fully attach some of the materials. For example, the
envelops could be attached with adhesive on the corners only.
3) Use some alternative dry mounting material. I don't know how
archival you want your work to be. If nonarchival 3-M positionable
mounting film works well. For archival moutning I like Fusion 2000 which
is a low temperature dry mounting material that is excellent.
