Default How to emboss mirror images of Spellbinder dies?

Sometimes I want a mirror image ( two die cuts facing in opposite directions) , but I don't know how to get the embossing on both of them .

Two examples of die cuts that would look nice facing in opposite directions are those in S4-327 Floral Flourishes or S4-121 Doodle Parts

Is there a way to do this?
Thanks
Barbara Jay

There is a way - but I have only read about it, never tried it. The instructions I have say to take the diecut out of the die and place it on the back of the die. The sandwich I have for the Wizard is: white cutting plate, die with the cutting edge face down, the diecut lined up on top of the die, embossing mat and then white plate. Hope that makes sense!

THANK YOU!! It worked.
I taped the second die cut to the back of the die with Scotch removable tape

Here is the CB sandwich:

3 CS shims
