Default Help With Embossing Mats for Big Kick

Hi everyone. I am wondering if one of you can tell me what kind of a sandwich I need to make in order to emboss with my dies with the Big Kick machine. I have already produced the die cut, by using the die. I seem to have lost the sandwich information sheet which is always included with the dies/product. In case I'm not being very clear, (good chance!) I am trying to work with the tan mats. I think-please correct me if I'm wrong-that you take the die cut you made, place it back in the die, but then I get lost with the sandwich?? I know this is likely covered somewhere in the Tools forum, but I am having trouble finding info that relates to the Big Kick, not the Big Shot.

Anyway, any help/ideas/suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks.

The Big Kick and the Big Shot are the same machines, so the sandwiches for the Big Shot will work with the Big Kick. Hope this helps.

Big KickT
Capabilities
With the Big Kick, you can both cut and emboss Spellbinders Embossing Dies.

How-To
From the bottom up, to cut:
1. Universal platform (thick white mat from sizzix)
2. Clear acrylic mat
3. Spacer plate from Spellbinders
4. Spellbinders Style Die (cutting side up) that would mean the side with the ridges
5. Paper or cardstock
6. Clear acrylic cutting mat

Second Step- to Emboss (from bottom up) :
1. Universal Platform (thick white mat from sizzix)
2. Clear acrylic mat
3. Spellbinders Style die with paper still inside the die
4. Two pieces of tan Spellbinders Polymer
5. Clear acrylic cutting mat

Okay, time for a stupid question: When the paper is still in the die, and I would like to emboss, do I still place the die cutting side up, or do I make sure the cutting surface of the die is down? My guess would be to have the cutting surface down??
