I've been crafting up a storm and today completed the last three land signs for Disneyland. This has been a fun project as I look for fonts and cutting files that match the iconic signage through out Walt's Park.
First up is Frontierland. For this one I just cut the title from kraft cardstock with Becker Wood Type and then inked the edges slightly. For the base I cut two long rectangles from brown cards stock and then ran the pieces through the Cuttlebug with a woodgrain embossing folder. To eliminate the seams showing where the embossing folder overlapped I used this technique.
Next is Mickey's Toontown. The lettering in red is a font called Minnies. For the base of the sign I used the Ashley Crawford font in yellow and then a blackout shadow in blue. I also made the first and last letters slightly larger than the rest of the word. Once I adhere this to a page I might used pop dots to add even more dimension to the title.
Last but not least is Main Street. I've seen a premade diecut online and thought that was a good inspiration for my title. I used the Algerian Becker Basic font in yellow and cut a second title from grey and adhered the letters slightly askew to create the slight shadow. For the vintage clock I used the Memory Keepers Cut It set from Lettering Delights.
Next up will be the land signage for California Adventure. I also have some ideas for different iconic attractions. If you have any favorites you'd like me to try and create please leave a comment and I'll give it my best shot.
