Summer Greeting Cards with Fish Lace Embroidery

These charming greeting cards use the Tropical Fish lace. They're simple to craft and make great keep-sakes

For the lace, you will need water-soluble mesh and embroidery threads. For the cards, you'll need cardstock of various colors and patterns, permanent spray adhesive or craft glue.

Hoop 2 layers of water-soluble mesh and embroider the design of the Coral Fish. For our samples we used cotton threads with 12/80 needle and pre-wound polyester bobbins.

Wash away the stabilizer and air dry the motifs.

Fold the cardstock sheets. Then, cut out the needed size. Our cards are 6" x 7 1/2".

Unfold the card. Place the lace on the front panel where you 'd like to attach it. With a pencil, mark the inner outline of the fish.

With a pair of sharp scissors or a craft knife, cut out the outline.

We like to use spray adhesive. If you are also using it, take an old shoe-box, place the lace on the bottom, face down and spray the lace with the adhesive. In this way the spray will not ruin anything else on your working table.

Place the lace over the cut-out and press firmly with your fingers. Place under a press (a heavy book will do just fine) for a couple of hours to let the adhesive dry.

You can further embellish the cards with stickers, small beads, shells, crystals, etc.

We hope that you liked our idea and will come up with many of your own!
