A Pop Up Fold Card tutorial!

These are all the RAGE now days, and I couldn't WAIT to figure out how to make it!
Inspired by Sasha's post and video, I made a version of this Pop Up Fold Card.  Click on the video below to see it in action.

Start with cardstock measuring 8" X 11"
Score at 2" and 6" when vertical and then at 5-1/2" when horizontal.

 Mark with a pencil 2" from the center on both sides on both score lines.
 Then, score an "X" using the marks you made with a bone folder.
 Fold the card in half and lay down with the fold to your left.
 Mark 1-3/8" on the score line, and then 13/16" from the edge.
 Repeat on the top score line and top of cardstock.
 Draw a line from the two marks you made on the top and bottom.
 Cut along the lines you drew.
 Then cut along the score lines, you will end up with it like this.

 This is what you should get when you unfold the cardstock. 
 Then, fold along the "X" you made, first one score, then the other score.
 You should get this fold and when you fold it completely, you get this house shape.
Next, take a piece of Real Red cardstock measuring 2-3/4" X 11" and score at 2-3/4", 5-1/2" and 8-1/4"
  Fold like an "M"
  Cut out 2-1/2" Crumb Cake squares and 2-1/4" Whisper White squares to layer and layer onto the Real Red squares "M" shaped paper.
Place the "M" centered on the bottom about 3/8"from the bottom.
Place adhesive only on the spot on the picture.
Then, close the card so the adhesive hits the "M"
Then, flip the card over and place adhesive in the same place on the opposite side.
And fold the card closed.
Now, open and close your card to make sure it opens and closes.
For the inside layer, cut a piece of Candy Cane Lane DSP (Decorative Series Paper) that measures 5-1/8" X 3-3/4" and mark 3-3/8" on each side and cut from those marks to the center on the top to get the house shape.
 Adhere the house shape to the top and bottom of the card inside.
Start with a 11" X 4" card base.
Adhere the pop up inside card to the card base.
Adhere a piece of Candy Cane Lane DSP measuring 5-1/4" X 3-3/4" to the front. Using the banner punch, punch the ends of a 1" piece of Whisper White and stamp with a sentiment in Real Red.
Here is the card opened up with images cut out from the Candy Cane Lane DSP.
Here is another card I made using the Here's to Cheers stamp set and Cheerful Tags Thinlits
 I made another one for my niece for her 15th birthday.
