Separately, create a rectangle roughly around the text (really, the rectangle can be anywhere) With the rectangle selected, chose "Path" > "Linked Offset".

It sounds like you're on the right track, though as Brendan mentioned, a sketch would be helpful. That said, when using the envelope distort (or I'd personally start with a "warp") mind that you're not only modifying the grid points, but also the beziers points that are between them.

That's it - you have a ...

So, this seems like it's going to take a lot of finagling and trial and error. Have you tried using the 'puppet warp tool'?
