Halloween Thank You Cards

No matter the season, I always find myself needing thank you cards. I challenged myself to make these using no Halloween themed papers – I just dug into my stash for what I had on hand.

I love how my Fiskars seasonal squeeze punches can make basic patterned paper into the perfect embellishment for any project!
