Illustrator: Logo fade out to transparency gradient in outer edges

So, I’ve got a rectangular little/logo banner thing drawn up in Adobe Illustrator:

And I want to fade out to nothing around the edges relative to a new shape; in this case, an ellipse.

Here it is again with the fading part overlaid in pink for clarity. So it’s like a frame within a frame.

Using a raster image editor, I managed to hack together an approximation of what I’m going for.

Answer

Rectangle

  • Fill = none
  • Stroke = Black
  • Opacity = 100%

Ellipse

  • Fill = none
  • Stroke = Black
  • Opacity = 0%

Blend

  • Select both shapes
  • Menu Object > Blend > Make
  • Menu Object > Blend > Blend Options > Specified Steps > Increase the number
