Prima Felt Gate Tutorial

I'd like to show you how I created this card using the Prima Felt Gate. Which can be purchased HERE at McMahon Five Designs.
Materials needed:
Heavy card stock paper. I use Canson water color paper that comes in a pad that measures 12"X18" you can find it at Michaels's Crafts Store (don't forget to use your coupon)
Grafix Clear Craft Plastic
Prima Felt Gate
Ruler
scissors
scoring tool
adhesive
hole puncher
ribbon
Designer paper
embellishments
**********************************
Cut a sheet of the clear plastic measuring 6 1/4"X 6"

Pull backing off the Prima Felt Gate and carefully apply it to the plastic lining it up as close to the bottom as you can as well as the right side, leaving 1/4" along the left side for your holes.

This is what your gate should look like applied to the plastic.

Cut a piece from your heavy card stock that measures 12 1/2"X 6"
and score at 6 1/4".
This piece will end up being your card that will get attached to your Prima gate.

(Once again please excuse my penny it's placed there so my camera has something to focus on)

Next fold down your scored line. Along the left hand side very lightly draw a line at 1/4" this will give you a guide as to where to line the marks to punch your holes. Next mark 3 X's one at 1 3/4", 3 1/2" and 5 1/4 " and punch holes over the X's. Carefully line your plastic piece with your Prima gate onto the top of your card and punch holes through the plastic as well.
Before I tied my plastic piece to the card I carefully cut the plastic as close to the top of the felt gate as possible. I think it looks better with that part cut away.
Before you embellish make sure you erase all your pencil lines.

Here you see how the plastic piece lines up to your card showing the holes on the left. You can use ribbon, lace or jump rings to hold your card together. I chose some pretty lace that I simply tied in a knot.

I used lots of roses to embellish the front of my gate

You are now ready to embellish your card as you see fit...
I hope you will give it a try.
