This weeks blog features a surprise 60th birthday invite. Unsurprisingly we opted for another great shade from the Colorplan range the marvellous 540gsm Smoke. Foiled in one of my favourite shades from the Foilco range the fabulous SHLR which changes colour in the light to flaunt all the colours of the rainbow.

This project features GF Smith’s 350gsm Colorplan White Frost duplexed to 350gsm Colorplan Ebony to create 700gsm, with gold foil to both sides it doesn’t matter if its black or white it still looks epic.
