OOTB SharePoint workflow doesn't have an option to convert your list item to PDF. To create PDF from your list item refer the below link,


But SharePoint designer workflow doesn't have an option to send email with attachment. So as you are using SharePoint 2013. You could create an item receiver in your list, on item create you can construct the PDF and send mail.

This is a third party solution, kindly check this,
