I decided to go all girly, kinda shabby chic style. Using crumb cake ,blushing bride and very vanilla and also chocolate chip.
Here are the results 🔻

For the card above I used the envelope punch board to create the ticket look to the card. Firstly cut you card base to the size you want and the using the EPB take you card corner at the point and put into the punch hole of the EPB and by eye make sure you have it central and punch, do this on all four sides. 
To get all the layers equal you must take them down 1/4 of a inch not 1/8 of a inch as it just doesn't line up properly for some reason.
I also used the gorgeous new butterfly framelits to cut the butterfly using blushing bride cardstock and I inked the edges in blushing bride too. To finish I used the blushing bride cotton ribbon and attached it used the Stampin'Up! Mini stapler.

For the card above, I used very vanilla as my base card and layered with crumb cake and blushing bride cardstock. I stamped the main image in crumb cake  and stamped the postage Stamp in blushing bride which I punched out with postage stamp punch, I then put in on the card using dimensionals to give it some lift. If finished it of with the lovely blushing bride cotton ribbon and a few tiny pearls for some bling! I love how it turned out.

Finally the card above was made using very vanilla cardstock , layered with blushing bride cardstock. I stamped the main image on very vanilla cardstock in blushing bride and cut out using the oval framelits. I also created a frame using chocolate chip cardstock, also using the oval framelits. I stamped the small stamp images in chocolate chip and punched out using the postage stamp punch and finished it of with the crochet trim and some tiny pearls.
