  • It would be nice if you can upload that .ai file so that others can take a look and solve you problem. – roxid Nov 27 '14 at 11:47

you should subtract the holes so it will appears transparent. you can do that by selecting the three objects and go to the menu Windows >Pathfinder > and select the Exclude icon.

That's it.

please notice that the very top object will cut the lower.

  • doing that makes the black all white inside the outline. – MIke Nov 27 '14 at 7:38
  • I used Minus instead of unite and exclude – MIke Nov 27 '14 at 7:41

Right click on the object and remove compund path.You will get the exact shape like the hole.Make it white or just subtract.Both will do.
