Leaf prints on the Fabriano Medioevalis card blanks look awesome! These lovely off-white deckle-edge cards come in several sizes, and I like the 4.5″ x 6.75″ cards best. They come in sets of 20 cards with matching envelopes or boxes of 100 cards and 100 envelopes (affiliate links).
Leaf prints on these cards give beautiful golds, rusts, umber browns and occasionally a bluish-green. The prints are an interesting combination of clear and crisp and soft focus.
The inside of the card also picks up a lot of color, and it’s difficult to write a message there.
So I cut a piece of off-white paper to fit inside for the written message. You can leave it loose, or lightly glue it to the inside fold of the card.
When opened showing both sides, the card is a gorgeous piece of art, suitable for framing.
If you’re not familiar with the leaf print process, check out my Introduction to Leaf Prints on Paper tutorial for instructions on how to create the prints. Printing with leaves is an easy and fun project for both children and adults.
