Finally, a Tutorial!!!

Start with the base of your card.  I used Wisteria Wonder Cardstock.  You will want to cut it at 4 1/4" , so down the middle long ways.
Next you want to score it using the Simply Scored tool, at 2 3/4" and 8 1/4".  This will give you your gate fold.
Next, using your choice of designer paper, I used Specialty Sweet Shop, cut two different patterns at 2 1/2" by 4".
Attach to the front or your gates.
Stamp the ice cream cone from the Mouthwatering Set in the Occasional Mini, in Chocolate Chip Classic Ink on a 1 3/4" by 3 1/4" piece of white cardstock.
On a scrap of Real Red cardstock, stamp the ice cream part of the cone, in Versamark Ink.  Using your Powder Pal, sprinkle it liberally with Cherry Scented Emboss Powder. Tap off the excess embossing powder and  heat with your heat tool, just until melted(don't burn it!!!)
and mount it onto your cone with a Dimensional.  
 Using the circle punch from the Itty Bitty Punches Pack, punch out of a scrap of Red Glimmer paper, a circle, and mount it onto the top of your cone with your Snail Adhesive.
Layer your cone onto a piece of Old Olive cardstock cut at 2" by 3 1/2".  

Wrap this with a piece of Lucky Limeade 1/8" Organdy Ribbon from the Everyday Enchantment Ribbon & Brad Pack in the Sale-a-Bration flyer.

Attach this piece to the left hand side of your gate, making sure to only use adhesive on the left side of the piece, so that your gate will open. 
As with any good gate, you will need to fasten it shut.  I used a Library Clip from the Clips Assortment.  Way, way too cute...I was skeptical about the Scented Embossing powders...but this one is very cherry...I wanted to eat it!!!!  Tonite my Stamper 10 Group I will post our projects tomorrow.
