Hello and welcome...
 Today's card would need to be either boxed or hand delivered to the recipient, although the 'petals' can be flattened I don't think they would 'recover' very well once the card was opened.  I started with a 7" white card base and added a layer of  lilac foundation card as a narrow border.  The pretty purple paper is from my stash and I probably bought this at least 12 years ago!

The paper was a 12" square that I cut to sit on top of the lilac card leaving another narrow border.

I added the white lace to the card front and secured it onto the back of the lilac card and adhered the layers onto the white base card.

I used the largest die from the Damask Motifs to create my 'bouquet'.  I die cut 5 of these on lilac card, sprayed them with adhesive then sprinkled Glitter Jewels 'Iced Snow' over each one.  I then glued the 'petals' together and set them to the side to dry.

I used only 3 dies from the set of 5 to create the white circular design beside the lace.  I cut about a quarter of it away so that I had a straight edge when I glued it beside the lace.

Wet glue was added to the back of the 'bouquet' at the base and adhered to the card.  I added a large white pearl embellishment to the base of it.

To complete I added 8mm white flat back pearls to the lace and smaller flat back pearls to the top right and bottom right of the card

I've attached a photo of the dies used and, there is a prize for the first person who can tell me the correct name of the black die set!
The 'mystery' die set!
