Burns Night Celebration

Today we celebrate the anniversary of the birth of Robert Burns, Scotland's national bard (1759-1796). In his short but full life, Rabbie penned some of the world's greatest poetry and left a legacy of literary treasures which will be recited and pondered over at tonight's Burns Suppers.
Merchant Soul asked us to produce a very fine invitation and menu for a Burns Supper to be held in Edinburgh.
The stock is a bonding of Cranes Lettra and Colorplan to give a weight of 650gsm. The beautifully soft Lettra has a verse of one of Burns' most loved poems, "My Love Is Like A Red, Red Rose", blind debossed. The invitation text is then letterpress printed over this in grey.
The reverse of the card is Colorplan Cobalt and employs the thistle and rose symbol, cleverly entwined.
Then let us pray that come it may,
(As come it will for a' that,)
That Sense and Worth, o'er a' the earth,
Shall bear the gree, an' a' that.
For a' that, an' a' that,
It's coming yet for a' that,
That Man to Man, the world o'er,
Shall brothers be for a' that.
