Heat embossing on thick window sheets

I used some of the paper out of the new mini catalogue for this page - it uses Cherry Cobbler and Always Artichoke as a color combo.  I made Cherry Cobbler poinsettias for it with the 5 petal punch - I embossed, spritzed with homemade silver shimmer mist and distressed.  The center is an Always Artichoke brad.  For the title, I used the same clear top note die cut and smudged silver  craft ink (retired) on the edges.  24 hours later it was still wet....so out came the heat embosser!  And out and in popped the top note!  Oh, well.....it made for a very interesting bit of texture on the layout....now if I can just keep it on the page!

Thats so cool...maybe some glue dots on the the edges. It would be a cool shaker-type embellishment, if you could keep the stuff inside.
