Enter a -10px Offset and click OK. Return to the Appearance panel and add a fourth stroke for your “main” shape.

Make sure that this new shape stays selected, send it to back (Shift-Control-[ ) then focus on the Appearance panel. Add a second fill for this square and select it. Set the color at black, lower its Opacity to 10%, change the Blending Mode to Multiply and go to Effect > Artistic > Film Grain. Enter the properties shown in the following image, click OK and you’re done.
