Deboss Design on Drafted Cylinder

I am trying to deboss a design onto a drafted cylinder.  I tried the Wrap feature but I keep getting an error code because the design is completely around the drafted cylinder.  Also, the design is a hand-sketched design so it is not the typical modelling that SolidWorks is usually used for.  I tried setting up separate planes and debossing the design onto the cylinder using the "offset from surface" feature for an extruded cut, but the design gets morphed on the sides when I try and do that. 


I was wondering what the best way to do put the design onto the drafted cylinder is whether it be in SoildWorks or in a separate program.
