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

Cardmaking and Papercraft - - Crafter’s Q&a -

Libby Evans, Swansea

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!
