Heat Embossed Glossy Die-cuts

Hello, Crafters.

It's my birthday today, and our son and his partner Sasha, have
 invited us over for dinner this evening. I can't remember the last
 time we celebrated my birthday with others on the actual
 day, so I'm super excited! 
Today's video shows how to heat emboss die-cuts using three
 layers of Clear Embossing Powder to get a really super shine. The
 tricky part is not to touch the front with your fingers, and in the 
video I show you how I do it.
  It's not a brilliant idea working on a technique like this 
when the weather is so hot, because I have a ceiling fan above 
my head, whirring away keeping me very comfortable! Needless to 
say it caused a thin film of embossing powder to cover everything,
 but I survived and have everything all cleaned up again! LOL!

 The video also shows one idea how you can use the non-picture
 designs in the Graceful Glass Designer Vellum Pack. There are 
three designs which are ideal as backgrounds for today's Thank You
 card, and they are: Coastal Cabana - diamond shapes, Gorgeous
 Grape - sea waves, and the brickwork.
 I don't have any of the brickword design left as I've already used
 it on other projects as a background. The design I used for the Merry
 Merlot card is just too busy. I made the flowers using the Pop of 
Petals Stamp Set and the Four Petal Flower punch. The stamp set 
and punch are available as a bundle which saves 10%.

The flowers in this set will only fit in the punch one way, so I have
 marked  on the back of them which way is top. I used some scrap
 paper to check  each flower individually, but now it's done,
 I won't have  to think about it again. ☺

 I now have two videos prepared for while I'm away and I have four 
more in the pipeline because I will still need three before I go.  If 
I keep  going at this rate, I might even have one ready for when I 
arrive home, too! I love it when a plan comes together.  
I hope you have a very blessed Sunday, 
and until tomorrow, happy crafting.
