Depends on whether or not it's an MS+ cartridge. One thing I noticed as I worked with the Slice is that it always cuts the insides first. So take a giraffe image, for example. It would cut all the spots out first, then the outline of the giraffe. So, in the case of an older, non-MS+ cartridge, I would select the cut, and diecut the giraffe in yellow. For the brown spots underneath, I would select the cut again (with brown paper on the glass instead of the yellow) and hold the front end up so the blade does not touch the paper while the machine cuts out the dots, then set it down quickly when it positions itself to cut the outline. It helps to have your cutting speed on low to do this little trick. Then you can layer the yellow piece over the brown piece and the brown will show through.
