These beauties are printed on vellum, so they're sheer; and on a light colored background the vellum is basically invisible! Which means you really can use them in a collage, and even overlap them. You could also apply them on top of text paper or other collage elements; but in this case, I just used plain white cardstock so the stickers would be the stars of the show.
I covered an entire 4x5.25" panel with industrial blueprints, facsimile text documents, office memoranda, etc; allowing some of them to run off the edge, for a more dynamic look. There are 40+ stickers in each pack, so I didn't even use half of them! I affixed the typewriter and my sentiment to scraps of a soft green gel print, matted the whole thing on bright green Idea-Ology Metallic Jewel cardstock and mounted it to my A2 card.
