And now for the really
25 Years. Silver.
30 Years. Pearl.
35 Years. Coral.
40 Years. Ruby.
45 Years. Sapphire.
50 Years. Golden.
55 Years. Emerald.
60 Years. Diamond.
All these years can generate some great ideas to be used on your cards, and knowing the themes will help you with your plans.
For instance with the long standing years they speak for themselves.
This is one I made for a Pearl anniversary. I kept the theme in ivory and added some flat backed pearls on the heart. The flowers are in cream, as is the velvet ribbon on the spine.
But this card could be used for any of the dates. The peel offs are in silver so it could be used for 25 years too.
The cream flowers have gold centres, and the peel offs are gold.
Make your card in any color you wish to suit the anniversary.
Add ribbons that correspond to the theme, and add flowers with the same thought.
Add coloured gemstones to match the year too.
A really beautiful card.
Both of these ideas for Wedding Anniversaries could be adapted to fit any, it really is up to you.
And as I always say.......
"Handmade by...your name...."
adds the finishing touch to your creation.
