Hi, I can’t see the cross marking at this angle, but this may be a cross orbweaver, Araneus diadematus.
I believe you are right. If you click on the picture, the markings might show up better. My research seems to indicate that orbweavers have many different cross patterns, I was unable to find an exact match to the pattern online. If you can’t see it at all, it is sort of a straight line with two to four lines across it. All the pattern seems to be raised.
I see what you mean about the raised pattern. The markings that are used to make a nearly certain identification of some of the orb weaver spiders do seem to be 3D – part of their physical development rather than superficial pigmentation. This is one of those species.
