Window Envelope Swap

Hi Everyone,
Well I am back at home after a 6 day road trip from WI to up state NY. It was a lot of fun. I went with a friend to pick up her sweet little granddaughter. She is 6 years old and just finish first grade. She was so much fun to travel with. She never wined or complained and showed so much enjoyment in everything from the sights along the road to us pushing her on the luggage cart.  On the way out, before we picked her up, my friend and I hit a couple of wonderful bead shops and some really special shops in Andes, NY.  That is the neatest little town. No cell reception but wonderful little shops. I will tell you more about that another day. Today I want to share a video I made a while ago.
I was in a Window Envelope Swap at TracysTreasures24. It was so much fun and I want to show you what I made. The charm is from the the Etsy shop of the friend I went to NY with. It is called The Wooden Hinge. Her hubby and her have some wonderful products. I hope you will check them out.
Here is what I created.

Not the best picture I took it from the video with the screen camera.

I would love to hear what you think.

Thanks for stopping and watching,

Linda these came out beautiful! What a great idea for a "pocket" envelope!


LeAnne said...

These are lovely! So unique, each & every one...I really like how you tuck your "recipe" into a little pocket. So do you just cover the envelope with the designer paper, cutting around the window?

Linda, this is a beautiful pocket card. I LOVE the bright, vibrant colors! And I REALLY LOVE the sentiment!!! Could you please let me know WHERE I can get it?

Greetings from Nantucket Linda,
These are fabulous & what a great use for those envelopes that we all get in the mail. Brilliant idea to put a tag on the inside! Another great project my sweet friend...
