I apologize for the messy desk you can see in the background!
I was inspired by a card Lisa Johnson did a while back, you can see it here. I loved how she embossed the card stock and then went over it with white ink. I used a paper towel dabbed in SU whisper white (craft) to brush over my embossed numbers. I used the Cricut Printing Press cartridge to cut out the number 40.
