Rather than thinking of this as a case of cutting "raised letters" think of it as cutting away material around the letters. You can't really cut a raised anything (i.e. cutting to add something).

To do that you would need a rectangle around the turtle graphic so that it doesn't get cut and a rectangle around the border of the large white area (actually a bit larger).

Once you have those you can use the "V-Carve / Engraving" toolpath among the two rectangles and the letters---setting a "flat depth" however much you want the letters to appear "raised" with respect to the background.

Hope this steers the right course. There are plenty of tutorial videos regarding this on the Vectric.com page.

From the looks of the image posted there is a turtle model in the design. This would have to be set within the material first to determine
where the final depth occurs for carving raised text. You would also need a vector of the turtle perimeter in order to carve the raised text without carving the material area where the turtle is located.

As stated in previous posts Vectric Tutorials are recommended for learning these techniques/processes.
