When Life Hands You Lemons Make Lemonade Tiered Tray Sign

Hello crafty friends,
Today I am sharing a cute sign I created with a lemon theme for my tiered tray decorations. Here is my sign.
My little sign is the perfect topper for the top tier of my tray. I used a variety of super cute dies from CottageCutz.com to create my sign. I have always liked this saying, so I decided to use it.

Here is a view of my sign. For my base I used a scallop stitched rectangle die. I cut it from white cardstock. I then used some diagonal plaid paper I created for a mat. I then set out to create all the cute lemon slices, the Lemonade title and more.  For the upper portion, I used a scallop oval from white cardstock. For the mat, I used some wood paper I created and cut out a double stitched oval. 

Here's a closer look at the top portion. I printed out the "When Life Hands You" sign. I attached it to the top portion of the lemonade stand sign in black cardstock. I cut out the word Lemon from black cardstock. I cut the word Stand in black as well. I used the "S" from stand to make the word plural.

For this lower section, I cut out a white fence for the base. I then cut out the leaves and lemon slices all in white cardstock. I then used my markers to color in my lemon slices and my branches. I assembled my slices and then layered them onto my piece with the branches. I also cut and assembled the cute little glass and pitcher from the lemonade stand. I also cut out the word Lemonade in black and white. I layered the black title onto a couple of layers of the white title and offset them to create a pseudo shadow layer. I did this so that it would stand out a little more from the fence and branches. I also printed out the word "make" and trimmed it out. I added it to my piece and used a cute little gem for an extra touch.  I lastly scattered some sequins for a little extra bling.

Here is one last look at my sign. I think it turned out super super cute and it is the perfect touch to my tiered tray decor.

Well that about covers it for today. I hope you are inspired to create your own cute little signs with some fun lemony themed projects. Until the next time, have a wonderfully crafty day!
