I would like the white icon with the stroke, to be red (or whatever is behind the green app shape). How do I achieve this using Illustrator or Sketch? I would only like the stroke to subtract, and the middle to still be filled green.

I tried following these instructions, but it didn't subtract from the green shape: Transparent path/stroke fill in Illustrator
