Now, follow the guide steps below to make the invitation cards and send them out to your favorite people.

1. Have the Celebrant’s Details

Get started making this invitation card by collecting information about the birthday celebrant. Know his or her name, turning age, and date of birth, most importantly. These are the primary details that qualify with the word birthday. Use font styles and sizes that will emphasize the information mentioned above on the card. You may add the celebrant’s photo to make the card really personalized. The recipient of the invitation would be pleased to be informed about the celebrant’s details so they can truly prepare for the party.

2. Get the Party Details

Get the details regarding the venue, birthday theme, and schedule of the party. You can choose the celebrant’s favorite color, cartoon character, or thing as the party’s theme. State these details on the invitation card for the birthday invitees to know and prepare. Add call to action details if you think that there is a need. Like in the celebrant’s details, appropriate font style and sizes for these details to make them noticeable enough. Introduce the party and celebrant details in a unique welcoming way.

3. Give the Card a Birthday Ambiance

Do not leave the card unattended with background and other designs. Critique the font styles you applied to the texts and the photo and other images you inserted on the card. Customize them with Adobe Illustrator’s modification tools. Improve the card more by adding a background design to the card. You can use the party theme that was decided earlier for this one. Critique once again the designed card you just made if it already suits your taste. Make more improvements and changes with Illustrator’s easy to use tools.

4. Enclose the Card in an Envelope

Envelopes may be seen as formal storage of documents, but in your graphic documents, like this invitation card, it makes the invitation more special. Use a designed envelope as well to make it all the more special. A special invitation for a special person in someone’s life. The invitee would feel more encouraged to join the birthday party because the celebrant gave him or her a well-prepared invitation card. As much as possible, if you include this in the birthday preparation budget to make the birthday plan more complete.
