What a Life Set

I made this quick and easy set of cards using the Hero Arts sets What a Life, Joy Ride and Bicycles for the Hero Arts December Contest. It's good to have a couple of last-minute gifts on hand during the holiday season for surprise drop-ins! ;)

I wanted to use all seven sentiments from What a Life because they cover all types of occasions and I love the impact of the bold fonts. The tricycle card even works for a new baby gift!

I paired up each sentiment with bikes from two sets, Joy Ride and Bicycles. The package of seven cards and envelopes is tied together with olive green burlap string.

Sources: SU Natural White cardstock; Hero Arts Joy Ride, Bicycles & What a Life; SU Real Red, Tangerine Tango, Summer Sun, Wild Wasabi, Ballet Blue & Melon Mambo inks; Tim Holtz for Ranger Scattered Straw & Dusty Concord distress inks; Memories Black ink; May Arts olive burlap string
