$3 Thursday – Birthday Blessing card set

I’ve had this pack of stickers sitting on my craft desk for quite a while.


The best part of these seals? 

They were only $.70 cents a pack!

Perfect for an inexpensive accent as part of a card set.


I finally found inspiration and a card design to use these seals.


I centered three seals on a piece of silver cardstock.


To add a bit of dimension, I added a layered flower with a button center.


I grabbed some larger paper flowers for my second card.


I used a button center again but added a punched border to the silver cardstock.

This picture seems to give  the truest color of the seal stickers I used.  They are a light blue with a raised silver embossing.


I tried a flower accent with an eyelet center – looking back I like the button centers a bit better.

Supplies used:


2 sheets white cardstock              $.10 each

1 sheet blue cardstock            $.25

Adhesive seals                    $.70

Flowers        craft stock

These cards were quick and easy to put together with some adhesive seals and some basic supplies I had on hand.  I still have a few of the seals left for some more cards or another project.
