Create a blinkie, just like you normally do. All the dots, background, etc.
Then, go to your "custom shapes" tool, located in your toolbar.
Choose a shape from the top. I chose a heart. Pick the fill - in color that you would like. In a new layer, draw the heart.
I have drawn mine rather large for demo purposes. The final GIF I have is of a much smaller heart.
For the bevel/emboss, click "layer" at the top. Then click "layer style" and then "bevel and emboss". Play around with it and see what you like the best. I like the way the heart looks like this.
Create a new layer, and using the custom shape tool again, draw another heart ON TOP of your first heart. (I have filled this one in blue and made it MUCH smaller than the other to demonstrate where to put it.) Only draw it a LITTLE bit smaller than the first one.
Head on over to your animation program. I use Adobe Image Ready. Set it up just as you would another blinkie - first frame set up as the background, 1st heart drawing, and the first set of dots. 2nd frame as only the background, 2nd heart, and 2nd set of dots. Play with the animation, and see how far apart you'd like it.
