Default Need Sizzix help!

I just got my big shot delivered to my door and was so excited to play with it. I got it all set up but cannot get it to work?! I don't know what I am doing wrong as it really doesn't seem that hard...

I am layering the thick platform thing, then 1 of the clear ones, the dies, felt and then the other clear platform. It will not go thru, if I try to force it it seems like it is going to break. Am I doing something wrong?? I am using this die ..it is from cuttlebug, does it not work in the big shot?

I know that I had a hard time cutting with the sizzlet and cuttlebug die with my big shot. You need to make sure you are sandwiching the die, big mount on bottom and clear on top. I just played around. Oh and don't leave the pages under the big block they need to not be in the stack. Sometimes yes you do feel like u are going to crack the clear board but it comes through just fine....no problems

On my thick platform, I have different things with it to make it thicker. Sometimes I have to go all the way to the bottom layer. Have you tried it without the platform?

If your thick platform comes with the extra sections, I would try to just put those little layers together to make it go through.

I have this die and use it with my big shot. You need to use the platform with this die.
I layer this way:
platform with tab 1
Clear board
felt
die white side down on felt
Clear board
