custom sheet metal work

Anyone here willing to take on what should be a fairly easy project? I'd like to have a smooth thin piece of sheet metal cut to cover the holes and vent left behind from my now useless tire carrier. Then a specific design cut into it that looks similar to an iron cross. I have no experience in metal work but I think this would be pretty easy for someone with experience. I can give more details if needed. Thanks

You looking at aluminum or steel? Do you have a picture or sketch of this iron cross?

If I'm getting steel I go to K&K Surplus in Commerce City (super cheap new & scrap) if aluminum I go to Alreco in Hudson.
