Wedding anniversary cards to recognise the years you have spent together.

Did you know that wedding anniversaries date back to medieval times?

The wives received a wreath of silver at 25 years and a gold wreath at 50 years of marriage.

Today, silver still commemorates 25 years of marriage.  While 50 years of marriage is now called a "Golden Anniversary".

Retailers quickly picked up on the commercial benefits of extra gifts and card sales each year.  

So, not to miss out on potential sales they invented names and gifts for each year of marriage.  That's business for you!

The symbolic gifts and flowers do vary a bit depending on where you live.  

Here's a summary of the main anniversaries.....



Whatever you give or receive, it is delightful to recognise the years you have had together.   

So, let's celebrate the good times shared......

By making unique wedding anniversary cards.


Before starting your cards check out your card sizes and layers.



25th Wedding Anniversary Card

A clean and simple 25th wedding anniversary card created with an embossing folder from Sizzix.


This clean and simple card was created with an old embossing folder from Sizzix.

Dry emboss the floral oval with white card.

Die cut both the "2" and "5" three times - once from silver card and twice from white card.  Layer together to provide dimension.  Attach to the embossed card.

Stamp or write with a gelly roll silver pen the "th" "Anniversary" and hearts.

Attach the embossed layer to a layer of silver card for a frame.  Remembering to cut out the middle to use on another card. It's too precious to waste!

Complete by adding to a white card base.




General Anniversary Cards

Card One

A wedding anniversary card created using distress inks in rainbow order and the doodled lace cover die from Altenew.


If you don't know the anniversary year create a rainbow card!

Ink blend with distress inks in rainbow order on a card layer.  I used cracked pistachio, picked raspberry, spiced marmalade and wild honey.  Sprinkle or spray with water to add a bit of texture.

Die cut the top layer from the beautiful Doodled Lace cover die from Altenew.

Attach to the blended layer.  Trim off any excess at the sides.

Add both to a card base.

Complete with a sentiment and the raindrop embellishments from Lucy's cards.  This are transparent so the colour of the ink blending shows through.



Card Two

A striking wedding anniversary card create from the Framed Roses cutting plate and Happy Framed Script die from Taylored expressions.  Background card from Clarity Stamps.


This striking anniversary card was a quick card to assemble.

Die cut the outer frame from the Framed Roses Cutting Plate and the inner frame from the Happy Framed Script die.  Both from Taylored Expressions.

Mount these onto a background.  Here I used designer card from Clarity Stamps.

Heat emboss an "Anniversary" sentiment with silver embossing powder.
