How to make a birthday invitation in Procreate

Our son is turning one in a few days (oh my gosh, where did that year go!), and we’re having a little birthday party for him, so of course I designed some birthday invitations in Procreate!

Our guy is mad about Bluey, which for anyone that doesn’t know is an Aussie cartoon about a Blue Heeler family living in Brisbane. It’s 7 minute bursts of sweetness and as far as kids shows go, probably one of the few that most parents will actually enjoy watching too! There’s a lot of jokes throughout that are genuinely funny, even for the grown ups 😀

Ok, now you know who Bluey is…

In today’s tutorial you’ll learn :


  • How to set up your canvas for print
  • How to find out what any font is and match it with a free version (so useful!)
  • How to install a font in Procreate
  • How to outline text
  • How to cut out images from the background

See the video below for the full tutorial. Underneath the video, you can download the free invitation as a procreate template and the color palette used in the design.
