Today wraps up a year of celebratory birthday cards for the Eger family. I grew up with Janelle – we’ve known each other since middle school, we were really close in high school and we were inseparable in college. This card is for Janelle’s husband, Jason, who’s incredible. I’m so glad Janelle and Jason met each other – I love them both, and I love their adorable children. I’m going to talk briefly about Jason’s card, and then we’re going to walk down memory lane to look at the birthday cards for the rest of the family from the past year. Here’s Jason’s card:
I’ll be the first to admit that there’s nothing HUGE going on with this card, but I am really happy with how it turned out. For starters, it’s a birthday card for a guy. Instead of primary colors or 15 shades of brown, I’ve used Birthday Basics Designer Series Paper (I LOVE this piece of paper and have been waiting for the right time to showcase it) for this masculine card. Sure, some of the colors in the paper are rather pastel-ish in nature, but you can easily pull Island Indigo or Basic Gray from the palette as an accent to masculinize this paper a bit.

Before I sign out, I want to share the cards I made for the rest of the Eger family over the last year. For some of you, these are brand new shares, but some of you have never seen them before. You can click on any of the pictures to see the original post. I don’t always have a circle in the middle of my cards, but it seems to be a theme in the cards I made for the Egers over the past year.
Jarah’s birthday on May 25. Jarah is a smart girl. She is inquisitive and talented and loves her BK. I made this colorful and sweet card for my Jarah:Janelle’s birthday on February 6. I can’t ever forget Nella’s birthday – she quizzes me on the date every time we talk because I forgot it years and years ago. I can’t say I get it 100% every time the quiz happens, but I know it’s in January…I mean, February.
And there you have it – a year of birthday cards for one amazing family.
Please help me wish Jason a very happy birthday.
