I'm not sure about the SU pads, but you need something 'squishy'. It helps to push the paper into the design, and if it's wet, it 'smooshes' even better. (Gotta love the technical terms, right?) Wizard, the company that makes spellbinders and nestabilities, makes a set of 2 tan embossing mats that are just slightly smaller than most texture plates. I use both of them. It looks like the SU ones are similar, but I'm not sure what the difference in the two are. Anyone else able to enlighten us out there? Why do you need two different ones?
