  1. 1

    Select quality blank invitation paper or construction paper for the anniversary card. Choose colours that correspond with the anniversary you're celebrating, such as turquoise for the fifth anniversary, or emerald green for the 20th anniversary. Select a calligraphy pen that is dark enough to show up on the paper, so that the words can be clearly seen.

  2. 2

    Fold the card in half so that you can write a short message on the front. If you're creating an anniversary card for another couple, write short phrases like "Happy Anniversary" or "Best Wishes on Your Anniversary." If you're giving the card to your husband or wife, decorate the front of the card with words like "For My Love" or "With Love on Our Anniversary."

  3. 3

    Open the inside of the card and write a message that completely unique to the couple or your spouse. Make the card personal by writing messages like "The two of you have always been an inspiration to me. I wish you all the happiness in the world as you continue your life together." If you're giving the card to your husband or wife, make the card loving but humorous by writing something like "Even though our life is hectic, I wouldn't trade it for the world. Let's celebrate our ability to take the kids to school, drive them to soccer practice, work full days, and still look fabulous enough to go out to an anniversary dinner."

  4. 4

    End the card with a sentimental touch as well. If you're giving the card to your spouse, end it with a phrase like "Love forever" or "All my love." For a card that you're writing for another couple, conclude the card with a phrase like "From all of us" (if you're sending the card on behalf of your family) or "All the best." It's also a good idea to include the month and year on the card, so that the recipient will always remember when it was given.
