What kind of font options did you use?
The easiest way to do what you're asking is to find a font that looks like what you want, make the font itself semi-transparent and add a shadow offset by a couple of points to the left or right and make the shadow solid. One could also make the shadow offset by a point or two vertically to create the depth you're looking for.
