This fun card will be a delight to receive for any Hogwarts fan. You can even change the wording on the card for other occasions. Instead of having your Cricut write the wording on using a pen you can also cut it out of HTV and iron on.
You could also make your favorite wizard an awesome shirt using the stars and wand SVG’s, your own wording and HTV.

Cutting Out the Magical Birthday Card
Unzip the download file.
Then open up Design Space and start a new project.

The prepare screen will appear
click on the yellow mat
the click on mirror as the stars are cut out of HTV
Now if everything looks correct on it, click on the continue button
The next screen will be where you will select the type of card stock you are using. If you do not see the material in your material favorites, click on "browse all materials" to find the weight of cardstock that you are using. For example the green Cardstock I used is medium weight, you will need to select "Medium Weight"..
Once you have Design Space set, you are now ready to prepare your mat. I used a brayer when placing the Cardstock on the mat, this helps in making sure that the paper is adhered to the mat and will help in keeping the paper from ripping or moving when it is being cut.

Starting with the card piece
fold it on the score line
next take the wand pieces
glue the wand handle on to the wand
then using foam strips or dots place on card to the left of the wording at an angle
