Embossing on the Cricut with Pazzles Embossing Mat

I just wanted to share a bit of info if you are interested in ever embossing a 12x12 piece of card stock or?
I purchased a 13x15 embossing mat from Pazzles at Joann.com for $11. 

This is what it look like after taking the protective sheet off.
It is important that you squeegee the adhesive firmly with credit card or similar tool.
I did, than I peeled the film and placed a 12x12 piece of Core'dinations from the Black Magic collection.
I placed the paper an inch from the top or were I was going to feed into the Cricut E. and centered the rest.
You can see how the back or were it embossed looks like. I first tried setting the blade housing at 4 and it did not work well all the way through.  I than tried it at 6, pressure max and it work well with a couple of tiny rips.
I used Elegant Cakes cart and chose  the design on page 34 set to "fit to page".
This is the front side of the paper. Here you can see that I started sanding the design. You may choose not to with different card stock or other materials.
I hope this helped somebody!
OH THE MOST IMPORTANT PART!  you do not need a special embossing housing or needle? all you do is flip over your blade, yes take blade from housing and flip over or place sharp end into the housing!!
