aligning angular material card in center of the page

All we need is an easy explanation of the problem, so here it is.

I made a Registration script which allows user to Sign Up to my site. Now the problem I am experiencing that the angular material card, in which the sign up interface lies, isn’t at center. I’ve tried many things including <center> and [layout-align=”center center”], still nothing works
My code:

<md-content class="md-padding" layout-xs="column" layout="row">
    <div flex-xs flex-gt-xs="40" layout="column" layout-align="center center">
        <md-card class="card-40-center">
            <md-card-title>
                <md-card-title-text>
                    <span class="md-headline">Sign Up</span>
                </md-card-title-text>
            </md-card-title>
            <form action="<?php echo $_SERVER['PHP_SELF']; ?>" method="post" class="signup_form">
            <div class="md-padding" layout-align="center">
                <div layout="row">
            <md-input-container flex="100">
                <label>First name</label>
                <input>
            </md-input-container>
                <md-input-container flex="100">
                    <label>Last name</label>
                    <input>
                </md-input-container>
                    </div>
                <div layout="row">
                <md-input-container flex="100">
                    <label>Username</label>
                    <input>
                </md-input-container>
                <md-input-container flex="100">
                    <label>Email</label>
                    <input type="email">

                    </div>
                <div layout="row">
                <md-input-container flex="100">
                    <label>Password</label>
                    <input type="password">
                </md-input-container>
                <md-input-container flex="100">
                    <label>Repeat Password</label>
                    <input type="password">

                            >
