How to only carve a select part of a project

I am carving a flag, I have part of it down to 1/8 deep and I only want to v carve the words nothing else. Any advice?

If you want the wording raised set their depth to Zero. Or if you want the words deeper than the large area set them to cut deeper. Share your project and we will see if we can help you. you might have to send pieces forward or backward in the design to get the result you are looking for.

I will try to send it in a little bit, I am wanting to carve the words only but no matter what I do it want to vcarve everything
