Not really so self-explanatory without knowing which Affinity app you’re using, what kind of layer you’re working on (vector or raster) and what kind of cutting out you’ve done.

Hi Nessx,

Welcome to the forums :)

If you select the layer with your cut out object on and then go to Effects panel the Outline section should do what you are looking for.

Thanks

Assuming a raster based effect is what you want.
