Hot glue embellishment tutorial

It's been a dilemma for ages, how do I get an Asian coin for my cards? Here's how I did it:

First I inked up my Chinese coin stamp with Versamark in and then put a large dollop of hot glue on my heat resistant craft sheet.
Immediately stamp into the glue and let sit for a few seconds.

Next I remove the stamp and have the clear image which I trimmed and covered in gold Rub and Buff, the one on the left is a before and right after. If you have gloves, wear them when you put it on or you will have gold fingers! I took a craft knife and cut the square hole and used it on the card above. One of the best parts is it's very lightweight.

Stamps - Horse OnyxXmpressions other's unknown
Ink- Versamark and red Brillance
Black embossing powder
Gold Spray webbing
White mulberry paper, black, white and red cardstock
gold thread
