Note: I needed to use the Pick Tool to push the bottom up a bit because the “y” hung over the frame and to also stretch the words out just a tad. If you need to do this just be sure you don’t disfigure the words too much.
Give the words a slight Inner Bevel:


Copy and paste your tube as a new layer.
