Simon Says Stamp came out with a fun Dotted Numbers stamp set in their Falling For You release. If you saw my card a couple of days ago in the mega blog hop I used the numbers to stamp 100%. But I wanted to use this set another way. I saw Barb Engler's card in the hop (here) where she double stamped images in a colored ink, then stamped them again, slightly offset, in white. I loved the effect and wanted to try it.
For this card I used the MISTI. If you haven't seen the MISTI in action you can go here to learn more about it. You don't have to have the MISTI to do this -- you can do it with a clear acrylic block. But the MISTI made it easy. I placed the numbers in the arrangement that I want on the MISTI and stamped in red. Then I moved the paper very slightly so that the next time I stamped in white it would be offset from the red.
Once I had the background I went searching in my sentiment sets for something that had the word count in it and found the perfect greeting! I stamped it in black pigment ink on vellum and heat embossed it with clear embossing powder. To adhere the vellum I just cut it a bit longer than the background so I could wrap it and adhere the ends to the back.
