Pop Rockin' boy birthday card with CTMH You Rock and Numbers Solo 8

This card has been kicking around in my head for a while but I couldn't find Pop Rocks ANYWHERE! When I finally found some my 8 year old began a 2 month effort to get a package but I kept telling him it was for an "art project". Okay, so I'm a bit sneaky with birthday surprises! This card was a HUGE hit - not only did he love it because it looked totally cool (his words) but it has a surprise package of Pop Rocks tucked inside! I loved this card so much I made several variations you'll be seeing over the next few days. Its a great style for putting little chocolate squares inside, adding a gift card, putting in tickets to the game, etc.

This card has a large 8 from our wonderful "Numbers Solos 8" set that has been pop dotted and covered with Liquid Glass for some extra shine. I also added a frame of Liquid Glass dots on the black matting for a bit of extra flair. The cardstock is all solid color but stamped in coordinating ink with the paint-splash stamp from the "You Rock" set. It gave the carstock a very cool tiedye kind of effect.

Materials Used:
Other: Liquid Glass, Star punch
