My friends will be celebrating their 5th wedding anniversary soon. Any idea what I can make?

Jo says: 5th anniversaries are usually celebrated with wooden gifts, so I think these Spring Market papers by Carta Bella (£16.49, Craftie Charlie) are perfect as they reflect the wood theme perfectly. I created this card by covering a 140mm square card with the floral paper and lightly inked the edges with some Vintage Photo Distress Ink. Cut a piece of black arrow paper to 107x76mm, layer it onto a piece of pink patterned paper and add the checked border along the bottom. Then attach this panel to the base using sticky fixers. Next, die-cut two large hearts from the wood-effect patterned paper and attach these to the base. I added a stamped sentiment, punched hearts and made two tiny tags from wood-effect paper before attaching them to the base with metallic twine. I hope you like it!
Use florals to offset wood-effect paper
