Handmade Wedding Invitations with Leaf Imprint
For the natural bride, who appreciates unique products made from recycled materials, these gorgeous tree-free wedding invitations were created using the handmade Leaf Imprint cardstock, made from 100% recycled white rags, imprinted using marigosa tree twigs and leaves which were placed between two sheets, then passed through a pressing machine. The pressure on the sheets crushes the leaves, which are then removed, revealing a beautiful imprint. This process requires no chemicals of any kind and the imprint is the color extract of the leaves themselves …natural color in its purest form. A translucent vellum overlay was printed with vintage clip art of two birds (from 1268 Old-Time Cuts and Ornaments book), and fastened with a mini silver brad to complete. The price for these gorgeous invites was also down-to-earth. The leaf collection shown in the background was featured in Brides, and would make beautiful favors for a natural wedding theme.
