I don't know if Acetate is the same thickness as the shims that come with Crease Pad.

You might need the shims if your die is cutting instead of scoring.

Premium Crease Pad *option A

Standard Cutting Pad
Originals or Bigz or Bigz XL die blade
side up * Position the Die with the
Crease rule Perpendicular to the rollers
Cardstock
Premium Crease Pad
Roll through Big Shot


Premium Crease Pad * option B
If the crease rule cuts through the paper try this sandwich

Standard Cutting Pad

side up *Position the Die with the
Crease Rule Parallel to the rollers
Premium Crease Pad
Roll through Big Shot

Premium Crease Pad * option C
If the crease line is ok but the blade fails to cut out the surrounding shape completely, add one clear shim beneath the die. Add both shims if needed Clear Shim * There are 2 pieces of Shim start with one first. You can add both if the sandwich is not thick enough.
