Using the same die, cut a decorative paper panel from a pink piece then glue it to card base. Using 2 Simple Centerpiece dies together, cut a frame to go inside from white and from gold (it should fit right on top of the line going through the decorative hearts (use the Elegant Hearts die to check).

Glue the decorative pieces to the card front of card then adhere the inner frame on top of hearts as described above.
