How to use the free Twist and Pop Birthday Card SVG in Cricut Design Space
A few of you were having problems doing the flattening part, so I recorded a quick video on using the SVG in Design Space.
Unzip the file, and upload the SVG file to Design Space.
Ungroup the SVG.
Click the rainbow “Happy Birthday” message to highlight it.
Click on the Ungroup button. ** Don’t miss this step! You have to Ungroup this specific group, or you can’t set the score lines. **
Select all of the Happy Birthday message layers, and click on the Flatten button. (This turns all of these layers into one Print then Cut image.)
Right-click on the three lines in the layers panel and choose Bring to Front.
Hold down your shift key and click on the three lines as shown to highlight them.
Choose Score from the Operation menu.
Now, Attach each score line to the piece below it by selecting both and clicking the Attach paperclip button.
Your card is ready to cut!
The light purple piece is for the font cover; the white pieces can be used for a blank space for a message or a block of decorative paper.
Cut and score the project.
