Edged Text

Open a new image to fit your text. Use a white background and apply your text in white. Do Not Deselect it. Apply Selection/Modify/Feather settings; 4 pixels (Experiment. The more pixels the softer your edges will be).



Now choose a brown color as your background color and Image/Effect/Cutout settings; Shadow=background, Opacity=100 , Blur=10 , Offsets Both=2.



Next Image/Effect/Dropshadow settings; Color=Black, Opacity=100 , Blur=10 , Offsets Both=3.



Now Colors/Negative Image to darken your image and give it a sharp highlight along the top edge.



Finally Image/Edge/Enhance More.



You can experiment with how much you initially feather your text. This is only 2 pixels.



You can also experiment with color you don't have to use brown like I used above. On this image I used blue as a main color.



This image I used red as the main color.



Below is a table that shows the negative image colors for the first column of colors in the color palette.
