Vacation Postcards

Say hello wherever you go! Using the new Fiskars Postage Stamp border punch, I created these simple postcards to send home a greeting while away on vacation.

They're the perfect way to send a happy message. While you will have to put them in an envelope for mailing, the recipient will surely enjoy getting a homemade treat from your travels.
