Hello! 

 

I have created the following in Photoshop

 

 Untitled-1.png

 

The 2 and the 3 are not white, however transparent through all layers. I would like to create the same funcationality using Illustrator. I was using pathfinder to knockout the sunglasses and it worked except I can't figure out how to also knockout the background layer, in addition to the sunglasses.

 

Any suggestion would be greatly appreciated, thanks!

Which version of Illustrator are you using?

 

That's what you call the background layer is a raster image, isn't it? In that case you would have to use an opacity mask instead of Pathfinder operations.
