Cameo Silhouette - how to cut halfway through material

I am wanting to cut sticker paper in rectangles, but at the same time, I want 2 lines to be cut within the rectangles that only cut halfway through, so the backing will come off.  Is there a way to do that?

    @jschmidt - you would need to put each cut - one that does not cut through the backing, and one that does - on its own layer. You would cut the layer that does not cut through first, using cutting settings that achieve that cut, experimenting would be required. Then you would cut again, using settings that do cut through the backing.

    So are the halfway though cuts in the front or the backing sheet ?
    There a tool that is often use for cutting peel cuts in the backing sheets
