Embossing two objects (text and a shape)

I am using a "leather" stock image I have changed the text on. I'm trying to add an object (to be specific a crescent shaped moon) with the embossed effect as well BEHIND the text. I would like for the place where the two (text and moon) meet, to be raised, and not look indented like the rest of it does. I hope I'm explaining this well. I want the lettering on the moon to be raised without raising the rest. Moonshine Leather Co. 8.jpgREPLACE ME1- MOONshine   copy.png+

Assuming all 3 elements are on separate layers, change the stack order in your Layers Panel to:

Type layer on the top,

Shape layer in the middle,

Background on the bottom.

 

Adjust advanced bevel & emboss blending options as required from the corresponding fx panel.

Nancy, did you mean to add 'reduce Fill Opacity to zero'?

@Trevor.Dennis,

My quick & dirty example uses the same fill color for all three layers  -- type, shape and background.  But the OP could use a Fill % of 0 which amounts to the same thing.

 

@TinaG926,

Assuming the stack order is in proper sequence with type on top of shape, it should work. If not, then we  need to see a screenshot of your Layers Panel.

I've tried all of this to no avail. It would be so simple with just text, but I really want the moon behind it and the lettering raised.
