Cool Emboss and cut with nesties?

So i'm confused (and maybe a lil slow, haha) but can anyone tell me exactly how to cut and emboss with the nesties at the same time, I'm not seeing how it is possible. Thanks!

You generally have to make 2 passes through whatever die cutting machine you are using. The first pass does the cutting, then you usually add the embossing pads and run it through again (but with a different sandwich). Sometimes I can get a light emboss and cut the first time but that's because I don't have my sandwich exactly right to do a cut only the first time. To get a really good embossing, I run it through the second time.

If you have a Wizard you can emboss and cut in one pass. But my understanding is with other machines you will need two separate passes.

You can? My Wizard instructions tell me to do it in two passes - one with the white spacer plate to cut, and then with the tan embossing mat to emboss. Am I missing something?
On the other hand I remember for sure someone posting about being able to cut and emboss in one pass with - I think - Cuttlebug. Still searching trying to find the thread.

Some recently posted a 'solution' for this. I tried this and it works:

From bottom to top
A plate
2-3 pieces of cardstock as shims
C plate
Nestie, cutting side up
Cardstock
B plate

It will be tight but it does work.

Yes this is the sandwich I have been using and it definitely works.

If you have the Big Shot or Big Kick, you can cut and emboss in one pass by using the Sizzix crease pad on top instead of the hard cutting plate. Works well.

With my CB and BS, I put cereal box cardboard on the side where the ridge is. Keep the c/s next to the ridge and the cardboard on top of the c/s. This pushes the c/s toward the opening in the Nestie and causes the c/s to become embossed and cut. An added benefit, the plate won't get any cut marks.

It does work with one pass to cut & emboss. But I find the embossing is not as deep. I still like using 2 passes.

I used a vinyl file folder with the two hard plates in the big shot and it worked! Embossed lightly and cut at the same time.

I have done the "one pass" thing in my cuttlebug but I don't like how it bends the plates so I've gone back to the "two pass" method. Just my preference.

I've never had a problem with the 'one' pass method using a cardboard (cereal box, etc.) shim causing a plate to bend.

Maybe it depends on the cardstock? I use PTI and Bazzill and it always embosses with each cut. No need to pass through again for me. I have the old purple machine.
