Why take the time to make a special and creative anniversary card to celebrate the 6th year...
…or any other ordinary year that’s not a major milestone for that matter?
Yes! Such a year is not a well celebrated milestone anniversary like the 1st, 5th, 10th, or any other significant digit anniversary.
However, it’s one highly effective way of rekindling the relationship. Basically, you’re expressing that every year spent with your partner is special, important, and significant.
In this particular case, my 6th year wedding anniversary was around the corner. And it’s special because my spouse and I still feel like newlyweds (We thank God everyday for such a relationship because some say it’s rare by the 6th year especially with kids…).
Hence, I wanted to make a special and creative anniversary card that would express that. The smiles and expressions I got confirmed that I achieved that goal.
And I hope this card will help you achieve the same goal.
There are numerous ways to put together greeting card phrases. The challenge here is to express sincerity that flows properly through 5 pages without sounding awkward.
From the pictures, you already know that the anniversary card message in this card points out the number of years together.
Please remember to replace the number (in this case, 6) with the correct one that suits your celebration:
Also, you could omit the years and rephrase it as:
Alternatively, simply come up with your own greeting card messages.
Okay, we've established that this is a great wedding anniversary card for any year.
However, since silver is the theme, it's perfect as a 25th year anniversary card. This is because 25 years is called Silver Jubilee.
For other themes, use the symbol of that theme in the greeting card. In this fashion, for a 50th year anniversary, simply replace the silver corrugated cardstock with gold-colored one.
And voila! The transformation is complete! You’ve now turned it into a Golden Jubilee card!
Cut out five 1.25” x 8.5” strips from the 8.5” x 11” pastel grey cardstock.
Use the rubber stamps and the metallic pink ink pad to create the heart shaped background on one of the five strips.
On the remaining four strips, use the rubber stamps and the metallic green, blue, silver, and gold ink pads to create the different flowery backgrounds. Then cut them to 5" length
On the frosted translucent plastic sheet, use the rubber stamps and black ink pad to print out the wedding anniversary card message.
Draw and cut out a rectangular shape around each of the five stamped greeting card messages.
Remove only one side of the double sided adhesive sheets and glue the cut out rectangular messages to them.
Then cut between each message to separate the different rectangular greeting card messages.
Use the pencil to draw a silhouette around the greeting card messages with about 0.25” margin.
Cut along the pencil marks of the silhouette.
Erase all pencil marks.
Use your tweezers to peel off the second side of the double sided adhesive sheets.
Then glue this side of the adhesive sheet on the colorfully stamped grey cardstock strips. Remember to place the “Happy Anniversary” one on the heart shaped background strip.
On the silver corrugated cardstock, cut out a 6.5” x 12” piece.
Score and fold the corrugated sheet into a five-page accordion greeting card format.
Finally, glue the five grey cardstock strips on the center of each page of the accordion.
