You now have a very basic cross symbol

 

You could also not save it to the symbols panel (for now) and then develop the design a little more. You could add a wood pattern to the artwork (if you have one) or perhaps use the width profiles or add brush strokes to the cross design. You could add other paths to the design or use other paths to remove from the cross. You could add a metallic gradient effect to the cross design and then save that to the symbols panel. The basic cross can be filled with other designs and effects can be added such as a mezzotint or halftone effect. The cross can be duplicated and re-sized and transformed or warped and much more. You can then either save the cross to the symbols panel or perhaps to the library CC panel for future use. Or export it to Photoshop or After Effects etc
