This pair of Embossing Pads was specially designed for use in the Texture Boutique machine. Constructed of durable PVC plastic, these Embossing Pads allow for easy embossing of Textured Impressions, Texture Fades and Texture Trades in the Texture Boutique machine. Simply sandwich the embossing folder and material to be embossed between the Embossing Pads and roll through the machine. Each Embossing Pad measures 4 7/8" x 7" x 1/8" and lasts for thousands of impressions. These pads precisely compensate for the proper pressure and height required for pressing thin material surfaces such as paper, cardstock and foil to make a lasting impression. The diagrams on the Embossing Pads offer easy guidelines about how to make the perfect Sizzix sandwich. If necessary, use the included Mylar Shim for deeper, more complete embossing. When the Embossing Pads are worn out, it is time for replacement Embossing Pads.
