SOS Challenge 47 - Masculine

It's time for another challenge at Shopping Our Stash! This week we ask you to make a masculine card. I know, I know, those are tough! But as always, we give you options: you can use masculine colors (navy, brown, red, blues, etc.), or a masculine theme, or anything for a boy or with a boy theme. I'll bet you have at least one piece of not-frilly paper in your stash you can resurrect for a card - you know, something you bought so you'd have it around, just in case? Yeah, that paper.

For my card, I chose to go with the "boy" theme and made another lego (tm) card:

I made a similar one back in February, but this time I went for the full lego look, with lots and lots of punched circles to simulate the lego board.

No I don't know if a young boy would get the "You Rock" sentiment, but his Mom sure would. :)

The rectangles are 1"x2" and are stacked 5 high. The circles are a 1/4" circle punch, and are stacked 3 high on top of each lego, but only 1 high on the green and white pieces. Hey, I got tired.

Now it's YOUR turn! Go into your stash and dig up something masculine or boyish and make a card, then come back to Shopping Our Stash and link us up so we can see what you've made!

Thanks for stopping by!


  1. I think I snagged your last lego card. Thanks !! But I used a dimensional under each circle. Gluing all of those circles is waaaaay too much work. TFS Hugs n' Stuff, Lynne

  2. Cute! That's a LOT of punched circles but it looks great.

  3. How perfect this is for all of the Lego fans out there! Is there a trick to lining up all the dots?

  4. Whoa! That's a lot of punched stuff. Very cool card, Leslie. I'd get tired quick, too. I know a lot of little Lego fans who would LOVE this card. Neat idea.


I'd love to hear what you really think! :-)
