It looks like a regular cardstock menu with an embossed vellum overlay. That sounds fancy, but basically, they used some a tool to create the design on the first layer, which is just vellum 🙂

I would guess you could duplicate this by printing on a transparency sheet (the kind teachers used to use on those old school overhead projectors at school).  They’re pretty thick (not flimsy) and you can print onto it from your home printer.  Staples has some here:

You could then embellish it with stuff from a scrapbooking store (adhesive jewels, etc)

Looks like it was printed in reverse on the back side of the velum and then they embossed the front side.

I’ve actually made something like this for my christmas cards. I just bought some adhesive scrapbooking pearls on a strip. I bought snowflake ones.

This looks amazing, but I can imagine older guests might have trouble reading it!

I think it’s plastic or glass, and the words are frosted on.  There’s a high level light above it, and the frosted letters are throwing their shadow onto the plate.  It’s too stiff to be velum – if it was, the middle of the menu card would be sinking into the ‘bowl’ of the plate, and the shadow would be warped.

@MissTaken: You could get the same look with printing onto transparency plastic.

If you create it in publisher it allows you to reverse the whole image and you would still get the same cool look.

Transparencies might be shiny and won’t give the frosty look that this one does and they may also be difficult to read depending on the lightning. You should be able to buy pieces of Vellum from Michaels, Moore’s, etc and print something similar and then add embellishments. It should give you a similar look.
