Mermaid Birthday Card SVG Template

I decided to use my mermaid tail design to create a fun mermaid birthday card design for you - I think it would be lovely for a kid's birthday card or even an adult's birthday card as mermaids are definitely not just for kids!

The card template includes the envelope and uses three A4 or Letter-sized sheets of cardstock - it cuts flat on the standard Cricut sticky mat...

So we need to add the score lines to help us fold both the card and envelope. You can easily do this using the scoring tool on your cutting machine if you have one, or score manually with a metal ruler and a blunt point like a knitting needle. I have lots of help with choosing a scoring tool, setting things up correctly with Cricut, or using manual scoring - all on this page - the instructions will also be helpful for you, even if you have a different type of machine, as it will help you understand the process of setting up ready to cut and score that you can apply to your own machine.

Once your card is cut and scored, the tutorial for how to fold and assemble your mermaid birthday card and envelope is here...

The template makes a 12 x 12 cm (4.75 x 4.75 inches) card with an envelope that's a little larger.

The template for the mermaid card has a pink outer card, green inner card, and blue envelope - like the card in my photo just above...

I wanted to create a really cute, really girly feel for the card, so that's why I chose this pretty pink for the outer card. I paired it with watery colours for the mermaid theme - I think the pink and green colour combination looks fun and summery! I tried to keep it to pastels with a fresh feel to keep to the cute, pretty, girly style.

My alternative colour idea for the mermaid birthday card SVG concentrates just on those watery mermaid colours - so blues and greens. I used a pale green for the outer card and a dark blue for the inner card which creates a really nice contrast to show up the design well - and a bright, mid-toned blue for the envelope - see it in the photo below....

You can also experiment with other colour ideas to see what effect you get!

For both of these cards, I used:

  • Sizzix 'Surfacez' textured cardstock for the outer cards - cut using the 'Cardstock for intricate cuts' setting with my Cricut Maker
  • Craft Sensations Ombre Designs Pastels for the inner card and envelope for the pink card - this is a 2-sided cardstock (with a white core) with a different gradient colour shift on each side. So I cut the inner card and envelope from one sheet and used the top part (palest, lime green) for the inner card and the lower part, (blue-green) for the envelope. The reverse of each is a purpley-pink colour. I cut the cardstock with the 'Medium cardstock' setting.
  • Craft Sensations DesignPad Brights for the blue inner card and envelope for the pale green card. This is also a 2-sided cardstock with one side dark blue and one a mid blue. I was able to cut both the inner card and envelope from one sheet of this cardstock (12 x 12 inches) and use one side for each. Again, I used the 'Medium cardstock' setting to cut with my Cricut Maker.
