Tunnel card tutorial

Here is another card I've been meaning to try out.  
It's called a tunnel card.  Here it is opened up.
I used materials from the sneak peek from Stampin' Up!  The new catalog starts on June 1st!! I used the new Affectionately Yours DSP (Designer Series Paper),  the Lots of Labels Framelits, and the new colors, Peekaboo Peach, Emerald Envy and Flirty Flamingo, both ink and cardstock.
First, you score a 11"X 4-1/4" piece of Peekaboo Peach at 5-1/2."
Then, you score a piece of Flirty Flamingo that is 10" X 4-1/4" at:  2-1/2", 5", and 7-1/2." Then using the second largest Lots of Labels Framelits in the center of the cardstock.
Fold the cardstock like this:
 Place adhesive only on the ends of the cardstock, as pictured.
Lay the cardstock by lining up the center of the Flirty Flamingo with the center of the Peekaboo Peach and press the adhesive down.
 The card should open up like this:
Cut a piece of Emerald Envy with the largest Lots of Label Framelits, stamp the sentiment on Whisper White, and cut out with the second largest framelit.  Fold both labels in half and adhere them together.
Then adhere the label to the card so it matches in the opening you made earlier.
Adhere 2 strips, measuring 1-1/4"X 4-1/4" of Affectionately Yours DSP to the ends of the inside of the card.
Using a scrap of the Flirty Flamingo piece you cut out, use a scrap of the DSP, and stamp and punch out a sentiment from the Thoughtful Banners in Emerald Envy.
This is how it looks opened up:
Let me know what you think of my new watermark on my photos. First, I cropped them, then I created the watermark using  I made a white text one and a black text one depending on the picture I wanted to add it to.
I watched this video and followed the steps:  
Thank you for checking in!
