I am not familiar with using the die cut machine that they have in the store. I am giving my niece a baby shower w/a jungle theme, so I was wanting to use some die cuts of giraffes, elephants, tigers, monkeys, etc. If I come in to the store and use the die cut machine, how do I get 2 different colors? For instance, if I want the giraffe to have its base color and colored spots, how do I do that on the die cut machine? Thanks!

Dies are basically a cookie cutter for your paper. To create a multi-colored giraffe, you could die cut a piece of brown paper and then a piece of yellow paper. Using a tape runner or a glue pen to adhere, you can then layer them to create a brown and yellow giraffe. Stop by your local Archiver's anytime and they'll be more than happy to show you how to use the machine and help get you stared! Hope this helps!
