Tutorial: Embossing on Metal plus Giveaway!

Hi everyone! Okay the requests are in...so many of you wanted to see Amy Chomas' embossing kit! So voila....here it is! It's a GREAT easy way to make a quick and bold card.
A few tips for you when using Amy's embossing tool....
It embosses metal and vellum beautifully...so make sure to use these types of media.
Anything your cricut or sillouhette can cut, you can emboss!
Metal and vellum can be colorized with alcohol inks, Copics, and Sharpies.
Sand the edges of your embossed image to give it extra pop!
