Autumn Blessings

Today's post highlights a very old set from Papertrey called First Fruits. It's a gorgeous set full of stylized, very classic fall images...and a fun pineapple, too.

It might be hard to tell on the screen, but the card stock is cream colored rather than white. Shocking, I know. But there you have it. White space doesn't have to be white. It can be cream, too! But for this card (and several other fall-themed cards I've made recently) the softness of cream worked better with the autumnal colors.

The raised panel was a scrap rescued from a failed card. I stamped the pineapple and sentiment, then edged the panel in with a copper paint marker. It still needed a little something-something, and a single small, brown bling was just the thing.

It's so fun to pull out sets from many years ago and play around with them. You just never know what you'll come up with. Well-designed sets are timeless. Tell me what old set you've played with recently.
