As promised its back to Vintage Friday and this weeks card does have a reason. I had n email from a lady in America who had purchased all the items need to make one of my cards form the Most Popular list on the right of the blog. She wrote asking for the sizes however as this card was made well over 2 years ago I wasn't able to find it to measure. Therefore I thought I would make a new version using the same die range the New York collection however altering the dies.
The finished size of the card is 9.5" x 7.5" it is a large card but as the dies are quite large and I used three in a row a large card was required.

I stared by cutting the detail die in the times square die three times from French Navy foundation card. I backed these with white and cut them into a square using the noble double pierced squares die in bright white. Next I added these to panel of bright white foundation card embossed with the braided vines A4 embossing folder, cut to 7.25" x 8.25" I shaded the embossing using Mediterranean blue gilding polish.
I cut a strip of the french navy and added white seam binding down the middle with strips of crystals running down each side. I then added a messy bow of seam dining at the top with crystals in the centre and at the end of each ribbon strip.
Finally I added mats and layers of the blue and white to make the finished card as shown at 9.5" x 7.5"
