Add a bit of the magenta paint to a strip of white cardstock with a roller or brayer and let it dry. Then trim it to fit behind the 'Love' aperture on the journaling card.

Meanwhile cut out the heart from another one of the journaling cards with the 'Love' aperture.

Use a brayer to cover the raised dots on the inside of the embossing folder and emboss the cut-out heart.

Cheat! If the paint coverage wasn't enough, add more of the paint to each de-bossed dot with a brush.

Round the corners on the card blank to match the journaling cards then layer up the journaling cards and the heart with 3D foam pads.
