Here is another idea on how to use Battenberg lace motifs for greeting cards. This method is a little bit more complicated than the one described in Greeting Cards with Battenberg Lace Motifs. However, the result is a more elegant card in which the beauty of the lace is emphasized.
Step One: Embroider the motif, following the directions on how to embroider Battenberg lace.
Step Two: Place the finished motif on a card. Using a sewing needle or the needle end of a compass, punch the card through the openings in the lace. Make punches in the center of the handle and along the edge of the basket, about 1/4" from the edge.
Step Three: With a pencil, join the holes that you punched.
Step Four: Using a craft knife, cut out the shape inside the outline.
Step Five: Place some glue along the edges of the shape.
Step Six: Place the embroidered motif over the glue. Press. Place under a press for some time until the glue dries.
Your greeting card is ready!
