Handmade Wedding Invitation

Vellum vs Handmade Cards

Many of our invitations are printed on our handmade paper. It is made from a cotton base and contains wildflower seeds and flower petals. The paper can be printed on the smooth side, which creates a clean, elegant look.

You could also attach a vellum overlay. Using a vellum overlay adds a bit of depth to your invitation, and allows you to choose an attractive attachment method such as our hand dyed silk ribbon, a leather fern spear, or another option. You can assemble them yourselves for a lower cost option.

Our handmade papers are formed one at a time with a mould and deckle. They are made with 100% post industrial waste and are 100% tree free, acid free paper. Embedded in this stock is our unique North American Wildflower seed blend. The seeds will need four hours a day of direct sunlight with constant watering until established. The plants can grow to as tall as three feet. The seeds include Snapdragon, Petunia, Beardtongue, Daisy, Thyme, Poppy, Foxglove, Catchfly, Maiden Pinks, Chamomile. This blend is specifically designed to allow us to print directly onto the handmade seed paper and for safe propagation across North America.

This card has the text printed on the textured side of our stock, on the reverse is a smooth surface that feels luxurious under your fingertips.
