I made the palm tree with a die cut from Dee's Distinctive which I have used a lot and the base of the palm is free hand with cuttlebug embossing folder. The treasure chest and pirate boat are stickers.
The second card I made I really have to thank my sister Chris for the idea. Check out her card here. She made a car and when I was told that Aaron really like firetrucks I thought I would try one. Aaron is 4 years old and I thought he would get a kick out this firetruck. This is a trifold card with the Top Note die again for the front of the truck and the back of the truck I made to fit the inside section of the card. The ladder was done free hand but afterwards I realized I could have used sizzix's fence die. The hose was done free hand and the nozzle is just the small slot punch from SU. The hydrant is done with a rectangle, large oval punch, the word window, and circle punches. The helmet (in the front seat) is large and small oval punches.
