  1. The heat embossing does look like gold foil and I like the look of it. Will have to give it a try. I have that Tim Holtz die set of 25 & Cardinal.

  4. Ok, I tried the heat embossing on dies using white cardstock and was not able to get the entire piece of the die covered with the gold. Used tweezers to hold it because when I went to heat emboss it the paper pieces would move in my tray and not heat properly. Then I tried taking a piece of white cardsock & heat embossing it but piece was too big to get a good covering and there were gaps in the heat embossing. Now trying 2" x 2" white cardstock, heat embossing & then will die cut the heat embossed after it cools. How did you get yours to work, details please.
