Celebrating with Sushi

This is a fun side step style card I recently made for my crafting bestie, Kris for her birthday. Kris loves little Pochacco, so when I created the cutfile of Pochacco for my son in law's Boys Day card last month, I knew I wanted to use it again on a card for Kris.

This time around, I added on Pochacco's body with a happi coat with a pair of zori slippers, joining them with his head in MTC. Added on his hachimaki (headband) and Pochacco was ready to make sushi!

I couldn't resist mounting him on an action wobbler...see, he's welcoming his customers to his sushi shop..."Irrashaimasse!!!"

And here's the lineup of the sushi being served. Lets see, there's ebi, maki, tamago in the top row followed by ikura, musubi and maguro in the next. These totally kawaii sushi are cutting files I picked up from SVG Cutting Files and Pretty Paper Pretty Ribbons. By the time I was done piecing everything together I had such a huge craving for sushi!

Here's a view of the card from the side; I added panels to the accordian folds or "steps" to get them to be the heights I wanted so the sushi would display nicely.
This is the card on the inside. I used the gift card holder die from Jaded Blossom to place the gift card to the side.
Soup, Shoyu bottle, and shrimp tempura cutting files are from Pretty Paper Pretty Ribbons. Had so much fun putting this card together...and LOL got pretty darned hungry too!

Oh My! Eunice, you are so talented, I LOVE this card. The sushi are so adorable! I love the little tempura shrimp on the bottom! Tamago sushi is my all time fav! (Maguro mo, totemo oshi desu ne!) I can see why you got hungry for sushi after making this card, I would be too! I hope the recipient puts this in a shadow box and on their wall to keep and admire for years to come! What an awesome treat!
