I’ve been so enjoying making my party invitation templates for you. I hope you liked the Halloween party template I created for you.
Today, I’m going to give you these five free dinosaur party invitation templates.
DINOSAUR AND HIS CAKE
It’s so colorful, and you can change the confetti colors to fit your theme. The dinosaur costs $1 if you are using the free version of Canva. That being said, you can do a 30-day Canva Pro trial (affiliate link) and get these and other amazing images for free. Or you can just swap out the dinosaur that I used for a free version. To get free dinosaur clipartS, click on GRAPHICS on the left menu then search for dinosaurs.
If you decide to use this particular dinosaur, Canva will ask you if you want to buy it for $1 before you can download your invitation.
THE FLYING DINOSAUR
THE PINK DINOSAUR
You can change almost all the colors in this invitation, except for the dinosaur since it is not Canva’s graphic.
You can change the dinosaur color and text. The picture frame can also be changed. To change the frame go to GRAPHICS —> FRAMES–> Pick the frame you like.
I have been using these Neena cardstocks for a while now and have loved them. However, I recently decided to try a new brand for comparison and I’m in LOVE. These cardstocks are bright white. I’ve never realized that the Neena cardstocks are actually a warm white color, not a bright white as is stated on their listing. The Accent cardstock is bright white.
DOWNLOADING AND PRINTING THE INVITATION
All 5 dinosaur invitation templates are in one link below. Once you open the template you can do one of two things:
1. Scroll to the invitation template you want and edit it with your information. Then download just the page that has that invitation.
2. Delete all the other invitation by clicking on the garbage pail above each invitation template, leaving only the one you want and editing that one.
If you want to use these templates in the future make a copy of the template first and then edit the new copy.
If you look at my templates all but one has a border. This is to make it easier for you to cut out your cards since the background is white. In my mockup above, I cut inside the border. So you can cut out your cards two ways: with the pink or green borders or without the borders.
Download your invitation as a PDF if you are printing at home. You can also download it as a PNG or JPG if you are sending it out to be printed. I’ve noticed that my invitations are blurry when I download as a PNG or JPG so I’ve only downloaded it as a PDF. Canva also offers printing services for a reasonable price with free shipping. I have not tried it, but I will maybe consider it for Christmas cards.
I recommend using a paper trimmer to cut your invitations. I use this portable paper trimmer. I also have a bigger paper trimmer, similar to this one, to cut 10 cards at a time. It makes it so much quicker to cut out your invitation. And it’s so much easier on your fingers.
