I do this one of two ways

If I am wanting to cut and emboss in one pass with the Nesties, I use the following sandwich from bottom to top

Multi Purpose Platform (MPP) tab 2
clear cutting plate
Nestie blade UP
Cardstock/paper face DOWN
Blue Crease Pad

run through Big Shot/BIGkick

If you have the black crease pad instead then you need to shim it just a bit.

If you are wanting to emboss only I use this sandwich

MPP tab 2
2 cardstock shims (110lb Georgia Pacific is what I use but you may need a different amount depending on the pressure in your machine)
Nestie blade UP
Cardstock/paper face down
Silicone rubber
Impressions pad

Run through Big Shot/BIGkick

Some people use other sandwiches, if you visit the Big Shot FAQ there is a lot more info on the first few pages about sandwiches for different kinds of dies in the Big Shot.

Clear as mud? Sorry my brain is foggy today. If you have any questions just holler and I'll see what I can do to help you, ok?

Happy Crafting!
