I know what you mean so this is for everyone else that inquired regarding the heat gun. I was intrigued by this idea...

so pulled out my super under used Embossing Gun and tried it. It did work very well. I will say that it will likely take a little practice to figure out exactly where to place the heat as I puckered up the center kind of funny, but the edges looked great!

BTW, on a side note, I started using my embossing gun on shabby flowers. It takes a little practice to figure out how close to have the gun to your flower, but after I figured it out my flowers were super fluffy and if you turn the flower upside down it melts the mesh edges in. I started using it instead of a lighter.
