Easy, Heat Embossed, Written Valentine's Card

Hello everyone!.
For those of you with not much time to craft, here is a 5 minute card to whip up at the last minute.
A long time ago, I realized Ranger Embossing Pens fit perfectly in the pen adapter of your Cricut Explore and giving my modern calligraphy skills practicing and my recent studying of flourishes, I came up with this simple design.
The sentiment was written with the Explore, using the Ranger Inksentials Clear Emnbossing Pen, and white embossing powder.
After importing the file to Design Space, ungroup the layers, change the function of the top layer to write, attach to the card base and hit GO. Without taking your mat out of the explore, hit the GO button again to do a second pass of the embossing pen, this ensures complete ink coverage of the line drawing. Pause your machine before it starts cutting and take the mat out. Remove the card base from the mat, apply the white embossing powder and heat emboss.

The hearts were cut from heavy DCWV glitter cardstock, and popped with foam tape.
