I answered Arlene directly, but I also wanted to answer her question here as well. I am familiar with the Gemini, but did look it up on the internet. It looks like it would work as long as the dies you are using aren't too thick. Flattened aluminum cans are pretty thin, so I would say, try die cutting a small piece and see how it goes. My rule of thumb when using die cut machines, if you get resistance, stop and adjust the material and/or the sandwich. It's not worth breaking the machine. Give it a try and let me know how it works. I'll add it as a comment on my blog for others to see.

I replied directly to Deborah, but wanted to answer her question here as well. Yes, Glossy Accents are the same as Crystal Effects. Also, if you have Stampin' Up!'s Fine Tip Glue, it can be used like Crystal Effects as well.
