Two quick attempts, I'd probably tweak the bottom one to put the points on the yellow bit.

Just in the middle of something, so not perfect.

Got 5 mins to explain it a little better.

In illustrator, duplicate the object, and merge it into one blob, no fill and add the cut stroke, you can offset the path 1-2mm as required, expand the background etc. :thumbsup:

Signlab, just add a contour cut path to it, it does it automatically :thumbsup:

In Corel Draw, just use the boundary tool or group everything and use contour tool and alther the offset
