And.....One More Accordion Card! Kissing Clauses

Hi, everyone!
This week I have posted a new Accordion Nativity Card SVG, and a new 
Accordion Jingle All the Way SVG  file that I made. As you can see, I've been on an 
Accordion-Bender, so to speak! lol!
Today I made this Kissing Claus Accordion Card SVG file. I hear the "I Saw Mommy Kissing Santa Claus" tune in my head, don't you?! 
I just love the mistletoe. I added some Stickles and pearls to it to give it color. :0) It is quite delicate, and a little tip for those of you that purchase this file: make sure your mat is sticky, your blade sharp, and slow your cutting speed down (I used Speed 2 on my eClips). My first cut of this panel on a second mat I have, which is the not-so-sticky mat, did not work. It mangled my mistletoe. Haha! That sounds funny......go ahead, say it aloud! Hahaha! Anyhow, definitely make sure your mat is a good one, and use patience when removing your cut from the mat. 
I haven't decided on a sentiment for this inside of this, yet. I just might make this the card to hubby, so it will have to be a funny one, for sure! :0) Sappy just isn't our thing.......

This SVG is a file for sale - please click on the "SVG's For Sale" tab at the top of my blog.
The file includes the card base panels, including a blank one in case you wish to extend the accordion.  The beauty of the blank accordion panel is that you can use it to create any length accordion card you wish! :0)
The file also includes the frames, the panel decorative pieces (the red dp pieces on my card that go around the oval cuts). The only thing shown on my card that is not included are the pearls and the full dp panel used on the last two panel (it is cut 1/4" smaller than the length and width of the card - easy-peasy to use your paper cutter for that, or if you're savvy with the software, you can simply remove the oval from one of the panel decorative cut pieces). 

Thanks so much for stopping by today! I hope you enjoy my card!
Happy Crafting!
