CAS-ual Fridays March Release - Cowbell!

**This is my second post of the day.  For my Lil' Inker Designs blog post, please scroll down**

Hello there!   It's day two of CAS-ual Fridays' March release, and today we have the hilarious stamp & die set, Cowbell, to share with you!

I confess - I didn't know what the expression meant, even though I'd heard people use it.   A quick search of YouTube revealed the hilarious Saturday Night Live sketch with Christopher Walken - and I must have watched it three times in a row, laughing each time!!
I created a shaped easel card using the large cowbell die.   To make it, I folded & creased a card base as usual, and then ran it through my die cutting machine with the top of the die NOT covered by the cutting plate.   This results in a shaped card that stays together since the top isn't die cut.  The next step is to crease the front of the shaped card about halfway down.  I die cut another cowbell, this one from a bronze metallic paper I found in my stash.   I adhered that to just the bottom portion of the creased card base, then stamped and heat embossed the sentiment in a bright aqua embossing powder from Zing.

I finished the inside by stamping and heat embossing 'More' with red embossing powder, and adding the 'Cowbell' word die cut from aqua cardstock.  To make the card stay propped up when the recipient opens it, I added a heart die cut (from the Heart Board Fri-Die set), adhered with a piece of foam adhesive.

Hope you've enjoyed my card today!    There's more inspiration coming your way tomorrow, so be sure to stop back!

The special coupon code KIMBERLYSENTME is good on any purchase (even new release items!) from the CAS-ual Fridays store.   Feel free to use it at any time!
