Create a 13 x 18cm top-folding card blank in cream cardstock, then cover the front with gold mirri board. Trim a piece of white cardstock to 12 x 17cm.
Using the GoPress and Foil Deluxe Machine, Floral Bunting Die and gold foil, foil four impressions of the die, following the instructions included with the machine.
Trim each foiled die impression to fit over the white card, leaving a small border around the edge, then glue in place. Die cut the bunting die in plain white cardstock.
Using the die-cut as a stencil, apply purple ink through the design onto the foiled background. Concentrate the ink towards the top of the background then fade out. Remove the stencil then apply a little extra ink to the top.
Attach the white card to the card front then die-cut the bunting in white and lilac cardstock, then gold mirri board. Adhere each die-cut to contrasting cardstock or gold mirri and trim to fit.
Trim the die-cut bunting to fit across the top of the card then attach with glue and foam pads. Wrap gold ribbon across the top and add a bow on the left-hand side.
Decorate a wooden heart embellishment using the GoPress & Foil Deluxe Machine and a piece of the leftover foil that was used with the bunting die. Attach to the top of the bow.
Die-cut a sentiment in gold mirri board, then attach it across the bottom of your card to finish.
