Embossed Text in Acorn

I am trying to create some embossed text. By embossed I mean looks like it has been stamped into the surface similar to the following. I know there is a lot going on in this image, but I am interested in the Text.

However I am unfamiliar with the proper terminology. Can someone kindly pointed me in the right direction.

What you’re seeing can be done a couple of different ways, but my favorite way is the following:

  1. Make your text and icon almost black- but not quite.
  2. Add an inner shadow via the Filter ▸ Stylize menu. Set the color to black, x offset to 0, y offset to -1, and blur radius to 1. This will give us the little dark edges on the inside of the text near the top of the characters
  3. Add a drop shadow filter, via the Filter ▸ Stylize menu. Set the x offset to 0, y to -1, blur to 75%. Here’s a little screenshot:

And that makes an image like so:

I’ve attached the .acorn file for this as well: button.acorn (112 KB)

Let me know how that works out!
