For the gate, I wanted a woodgrain-ish look, but don't have a woodgrain stamp or embossing folder by MFT. So, I improvised and literally dragged my ink pad over the paper before cutting out the shape. I think it worked out pretty well.
And, of course, I HAD to add foam tape because that's how I roll. Gotta have that dimension.
