It’s a pretty simple image in the grand scheme of things. I guess you want the red outline as a cut, the black and text as an engrave?
- Bring it into Illustrator and turn off the two layers that are the black engrave and the text
- This leaves you with just the red tree outline and the cut hole at the top
- For the next step, you can either trace it manually or do an autotrace. It’s a really simple shape, so honestly, I would just trace it manually but that’s just me.
- If you want to autotrace, select the red tree layer and go to menu item Window > Image Trace
- Clicking the outline preset should get you there pretty close.
- Click the “Advanced” dropdown button in the image trace window, select Ignore White and select Preview. Here’s the settings I used - the view is set to Outlines with Source Image so I can see how close it is.
If that looks good, just click the Expand button up on the top of the screen.
That will convert it to an editable vector shape. If you selected Mode: Color on the image trace screen, it will match the color of the outline, otherwise it will be black. Either is fine.
Then, do the same thing for the little cut circle up top.
You could, at the very beginning of this select both the tree outline and the cut outline layers and go to menu item Object > Rasterize, and it would combine those two bitmap images into one and then the trace would trace both elements at the same time… but, you gotta run before you can walk
