    I'm not great with stuff like this, and it's a bit hard to tell on the pic but...
    It looks to me as though there is a purple background mounted on the card and just the silver part is embossed and vice versa on the others.

        I couldn't quite see from the image either but it sounds like it might be a bit like triple embossing...

        The quickest way I'd suggest is to use purple card or purple ink, cover with a few layers of silver embossing powder and then when still hot press a uninked heart stamp into it - where the stamp goes the purple should show through leaving the silver embossed background.

        I hope that makes some sense

          It's really hard to see the technique used in the photo.
          It's not some kind of dry embossed metal foil and alcohol inks is it...?
          I'd love to see these cards 'in the flesh'...

            Hi, it's a bit tricky to tell, but if it's not hot foil (don't know anything about this) it looks like it must be wet embossed (probably double layer) using a stamp and silver powder over the purple background, which might be a block of colour pre stamped direct onto the card blank.

              Looking at the pic (small on my PC, co I cant see too clear!) I suspect that this is a dry emboss card - i.e. the shapes are created by pressing the card with a stencil to create the textures.. When it is machine made, it is easy to do as the design is printed on flat card, then the texture added afterwards.. not at all easy to do "at home" and in bulk..

              Just a thought.. could you not do emboss resist?? use a rubber stamp and/or embossing glue pen to get the silvered area, then heat emboss with a good embossing powder.. then use an ink pad, or even a brush with calligraphy ink or acrylic paint to paint all over the design, and wipe off the excess with kitchen roll. The ink should wipe off the shiny embossed area, and the spaces inbetween will take up the colour..

                I've seen sets in boyes where there are a pair of stamps. The first is a slightly textured block the lays a colour down in this case purple. This is allowed to dry totally and then a second stamp is used and lays on the area to be embossed. Poweder is then sprinkled on (in this case silver) and the design is heated.
