SVG Birthday Card Template - Dragonfly Design
Papercut dragonfly birthday card - SVG, EPS, DXF and PNG file formats
This gorgeous SVG birthday card template has an intricate papercut design with a beautiful dragonfly and floral decoration - it's a pretty and classic design that you can use for recipients of any age.
It's also easy to make with your Cricut or other cutting machine - you could also use the PNG format to cut by hand if you prefer.
Digital dragonfly SVG birthday card template - 'cut and score' project including envelope
You will need to use the 'cut and score' functions on your cutting machine to make the card - you can also score by hand if you don't have a scoring tool. If you are a Cricut user, I have all the instructions to help you set up the line properly to score, in Cricut Design Space - you can see that here - you might also find it useful if you're using another type of cutting machine or if you want to score by hand.
Once the card is all cut (and scored) I have a full craft tutorial to help you fold and assemble the card here - it's super easy!
- Used as-is in Cricut Design Space, the SVG is set up to create a finished card that's approximately 12 x 12 cm (around 4.75 x 4.75 inches) with an envelope that's a little larger.
- The card needs three A4 or Letter-sized sheets of cardstock (total for card and envelope).
- The card cuts on the standard Cricut mat (not the specialist card mat).
Gorgeous, intricate-look dragonfly birthday card template - totally teal with green envelope
I made my dragonfly design SVG birthday card template this lovely teal colour (above), teamed up with a white inner card and a green envelope. I think that it's quite a contemporary and very striking look...
The pretty design stands out really well with this colour combination and I think that the teal and green colours indicate the colour of the dragonfly, as I always do think of those stunning blue and green shimmering colours of dragonflies!
I also like to create an alternate colour for my card templates and designs - I wanted to make my alternate colour idea for the dragonfly birthday card SVG template in lovely lilac (see below)...
A pretty look for the dragonfly card - lovely lilac with a soft blue-green envelope
I always think lilac suits dragonflies really well - it's a delicate and airy colour, very spiritual, just like the enigmatic dragonfly! I made the inner card white so that the design would stand out well, and paired the card with a soft blue-green envelope.
This is a pretty and feminine look - a bit more classic in style than the teal.
Lots of other colours would work really well for the dragonfly card template - soft pastel colours would look pretty and soft, like the lilac version above - and brighter colours teamed with white or other neutrals will look more contemporary. It's up to you! I hope these two examples will start to inspire you, though...
I cut the dragonfly SVG birthday card templates with my Cricut Maker:
- The outer cards are both Sizzix 'Surfacez' textured cardstock
- The inner cards and envelopes are a generic lightweight crafting cardstock (160 gsm)
- I used the 'cardstock for intricate cuts' setting for the outer card
- I used the 'lightweight cardstock' setting for the inner card and envelope
