How do I do it is the question that I am asking for this one?

What do you mean by “it”, Josie? Please try to be more specific about the parts of the project that are causing you problems.

If it's difficult for you to build that up out of ADe shapes, then trace that stuff either manually (with the Pen- or Pencil Tool) or with some third party bitmap-to-vector tracing app. - Here are those inner shapes traced as vectors (you can copy/paste the layers over into your document and resize them as you need) ...



For the two single curve layers (inner + outer shape) I've added a 1 pt stroke to them, just so they are better visable here. - You have to remove the applied stroke from these then and use them just with a fill color.

Not sure what you mean, it's all ready for reuse in one group here, just open that ADe file select the group and copy it. Then switch over to your document and paste it into your document for reusage. Move, resize, rotate and adjust it etc. to your needs. The outer brown shown below is an applied stroke to the bigger yellow/beige filled curve, you can adjust/resize or remove it as you need ...

So how do I subtract from the rectangle so it’s not to little or to much so those fit?

Depends on the size of the whole bite-marks group, the way you size that. - Since you will use the bigger inner "beige with brown stroke" curve of it in order to subtract it from the big "brown rounded rectangle".

Thus position that "beige with brown stroke" curve so it's ends just slightly overlap the big "brown rounded rectangle" boundaries, so you can subtract one from the other!


See above screencast video ...

  1. from the group of those bite-marks duplicate inside the group the bigger "beige with brown stroke" curve. 
  2. move the duplicate curve out of the group, we will use this curve to subtract it from the big "brown rounded rectangle".
  3. position the duplicate "beige with brown stroke" curve on the "brown rounded rectangle" so it slightly overlaps the boundaries
    of the "brown rounded rectangle", select both and perform a geometrical subtract (see the video above).
  4. Now you have a splitted big "brown rounded rectangle", switch over to the Node tool  and remove the unwanted left over top right parts.
    Select those with the Node tool and delete them.
  5. Ok now you have left over the bitten portion of the big "brown rounded rectangle". Use the Move tool, select the whole bite-marks group
    and drag it onto the bitten big "brown rounded rectangle" so it covers nicely the right top bitten side of it. - Select all and group,
    so you have now the whole inside a group you can move around.
  6. That's all to it!


Here's the resulting file from the video screencast ...
