I don't think it's possible in Cura but with Meshmixer you can probably do a boolean of an STL text and a block

Or maybe with 123D Design (there is a text function there where you can extrude it)

    I did my 3D text in blue. I would like a silver outline to slide over the letters...so it looks like the blue letters are raised inside the silver background.

    I don't know for Cura but you can normally do that in most image editor.

    You probably don't need to do this "reverse cut text". Just print on top. That's what I did but the key was that the text was .1mm thick and the part printed on top was bottom layer .3mm thick (with no cut outs).
