How to create editable text with effects

I need help to know by steps how to create the same as the attached snapshot. It’s done in Adobe Illustrator (Strokes, fills and effects from the appearance box), I manage to create editable transparent text with the 2 white strokes inside and outside the text.
What I couldn’t do is how to create the white depth (the white depth with scratches) and avoiding to show the depth inside or behind the transparent text

The steps how to create this image


I can’t help but wonder why you don’t just examine the Appearance panel to see the effect there. But then, perhaps you only have the screenshot and not the actual Illustrator file.

The only way I can think to do this would be via blending modes. If you fill the interior of the type with black, then set the blending mode to Screen, the black will disappear on a dark background leaving the white strokes and block shadow visible.

Without blending modes, I don’t believe there’s any way to get the transparent interior unless the font is designed with a transparent interior. However, if the font comes with a transparent interior, the inline stroke becomes problematic to create.

Right-click/Control-click and choose Open image in new tab/window to see it larger.
