Embossed With Color

Open a new image large enough to fit your text. Apply your text with white color. Keep your text selected

Now choose Image/Effect/Cutout settings; Shadow=black, Opacity=100, Blur=3 or 4, Offsets Both=3.
And again, Image/Effect/Cutout settings stay the same except Offset Both=-3.
Next apply Image/Others/Emboss.
Colors/Colorize settings; Hue/Saturation=whatever.
Maybe add a drop shadow...

Or if you want a more dramatic effect...
before you colorize, deselect your text and choose Colors/Negative Image.
Then Colors/Colorize settings; Hue/Saturation=whatever.
