We’ve opened up our first shop on Etsy!  Our new shop called Mulberry Fields by MDC Designs will focus on our eco-friendly mulberry wedding invitations with some old favourites and some new ones too!

Here are two of the designs available now.  Both are great designs for destination, resort or beach weddings!

Coastline is a four layer invite of natural textured mulberry, kraft paper, metallic ivory cardstock and a layer of light blue translucent unryu (or mulberry tissue).  It is tied together with a raffia bow.  This unique invitation is inspired by the colours and textures of the beach -sand and ocean.

Starfish is a tropical pocketfold invitation in shades of beautiful bright turquoise mulberry. This handmade pocketfolder combines beautifullly with the shine of metallic ivory cardstock and satin ribbon band.

custom destination wedding invite


Allison came to MDC Designs looking for destination wedding invitations.  She liked the clean modern lines of our Letter invitation but wanted something more fun and beachy, yet still a little formal.  She also had a lot of text due to her wedding away and reception at home. 

We started our custom design with the Letter invitation as our inspiration.  To make it fit more text, we simply switched the design from landscape to portrait.  Then, we found the perfect paper to for our tropical wedding, a natural textured mulberry in a fun light aqua colour which we paired with metallic papers in deep teal and golden cream. 

Allison's bridesmaid's dresses were navy, but she felt the colour was too formal for her invites, as they would set the tone for her wedding.  So, we decided to add her colour by printing the text in navy, with some great aqua highlights. Our final step was to add a thick ivory ribbon which completed the look and held the reply card and map together in the back.

We love these so much that a version will soon be added to our collection!

Eco-Friendly Designs
It’s the 40th anniversary of Earth Day.  We’ve been celebrating all year, making greener designs that are still beautiful & unique. 

With so many great options, environmentally friendly invitations don’t have to be boring or dull.  In fact, MDC Designs has been using eco-friendly products right from the beginning.  We’ve simply made the move to use more!

Some of most beautiful papers in the world are environmentally friendly.  Papers such as mulberry(kozo), lokta, hemp and cotton are made from sustainable plants.  Paper mills are creating more and more recycled products.  As well they are making paper using alternative energy sources such as wind and water.

Check out our website for beautiful designs like Claret and Green Tamarind (above) which are made from completely from sustainable & recycled papers. We are happy to switch any papers in the MDC line to add more recycled content or tree free paper. 

For DIY see our beautiful mulberry pocketfolder and petalfolder kits made of sustainable paper with recycled cardstock and envelopes.

Mulberry Pocketfolder

We love being noticed!

Last year bride.ca took notice of our beautiful mulberry pocket folders, saying that it was "DIY meets Eco-Chic" in their blog about the DIY scene in Canada.  This year they asked us for more information and posted a feature article on us and our many green DIY options.
