Hello and welcome...
 I made this card for a lady's 60th birthday

It's an 8" square white card base and I cut a gorgeous 12" square paper, from my stash, a little smaller than the card and used a Woodware corner punch on all 4 corners

I added white lace to the card and a 3mm pale green satin ribbon on top of the lace  and secured it onto the back of the paper prior to adhering to the base card

I typed a personal sentiment onto aqua card stock and die cut this using  the 4th cutting edge die from the Marvellous Squares die set.  This was then adhered, flat, to the card.  Using the same die again plus the 5th die from the same set I die cut and embossed a piece of white card stock, added mounting foam to the back and placed it over the sentiment as a frame

I added a selection of flowers in pinks, peach and aqua around the frame as well as a few sprigs of gypsophila/baby's breath and finally a small heart

I typed a personal verse onto aqua card and added some other words to a second piece aqua card.  These were then die cut and adhered to both sides of the card

The card then had tissue paper over it and  placed in an 8" square card box  with a white crushed silk ribbon around the box
This is nearer the correct colour of the paper!

The verse, apologies for the light!
