This model uses an improved version of my Broken Heart Molecule. I call this version simply Heart Tessellation II / Molecule.

Improvements include: better proportions, not only the molecule but also its crease pattern being square, and a convenient grid size: the heart itself uses a 14×14 grid, so a 16×16 grid results in the heart surrounded by one grid unit of margin. By adding another 8 grid units for the frame, we end up with a 24×24 grid for the framed heart. This molecule can also be tessellated.

In another fold, you can also see the back side of this model.
