How to smooth text extruded from card?

Recommended Posts

I'm modeling a credit card.

I have the basic card shape in place, and I have the text ready to go as well.  
What I'm wanting to do is have the text gradually blend into the card, just like it would on a real credit card.  In other words, I don't want the text extrusion to be at a 90-degree angle from the face of the card, but rather smoothly blend down into the face of the card.  

I can't figure out the best way to go about this.

Thanks for any tips!

High-res displacement map should do the trick. For the soft/blended look of embossed plastic, try putting a slight blur on the text edges.
