Diamond Fold card tutorial

Getting ready for Halloween!!
I saw this card posted by Vinny Cespedes and had to make one.
Here is my version opened up and closed: 

Start with a piece of Pumpkin Pie cardstock measuring 4" X 12, scoring at 2", 4", 8", and 10"
Mark the top and bottom at 6" and then, score from the top mark to both of the bottom 2" and 8" score lines, then score from the bottom mark to both the top 2" and 8" score lines.  
You will end up with this.
Fold in the ends and the "X" you scored.  Here is a top view:
 Here is another view:
 When you close it, it should look like this:
I cut a piece of Basic Black that was 2-1/2"  square and a Whisper White that was 2" square. I stamped a jack o'lantern in Pumpkin Pie ink on the Whisper White square.  I also stamped 2 pieces of Whisper White measuring 1-3/4" X 3-3/4" for the side panels.
I also took a piece of Cherry Cobbler and a piece of Crushed Curry measuring 3-3/4" square.
And I cut them like this:
I used them to decorate the folded out parts in a pattern.
Here is a close up of the closed card.
Thank you for checking in!
