Fabric postcard and ATCs

I finished off my Teapot postcard tonight, so I'll be able to post that to Laura in the USA who has been patiently waiting for me to complete our swap! Today's mail brought a pleasant surprise: two ATCs from Mary Lou in Canada. She has used a technique called needlefelting to make these, and she has included parts of old watches to embellish the orange ATC. VERY different!

Love your teapot design. Very clever way to use a print.

Do you mail these directly as is? Or do you put them in an envelope and send them?

Hi Annie,
Thanks for your comment; I must admit I am very pleased with this teapot postcard, as it was done in a hurry! Up til recently, I have been mailing my FPCs in plastic pouches so they can be seen by the postal staff who handle them throughout the system, but one disappeared recently, and I'm wondering whether I should continue doing that, or put them in an envelope from now on...
