Updated Pop Up Fold Card Tutorial!!

Remember this Pop Up Fold card?
I wanted to make it with less paper so I could do 2 per one sheet of 8-1/2" X 11"
Here's my version to make the inside mechanism, start with a piece of cardstock measuring 5" X 8"
Score it at 2" and 6" when horizontal and then at 2-1/2" when vertical, so it looks like this:
Make marks on each score line, a 1/2" from both the top and bottom
Using a bone folder, score from the marks you made to form an "X"
Fold on all the score marks, starting with the 2 ends.
Then each of the diagonals along the "X" you formed, first the one side,
then, fold the other side.
Unfold, and then fold it in half, with the fold to the left.
Make a mark at 7/8" on the top, and then 1-1/4" on the top score line.  Then, repeat on the bottom.  Then draw a line from the marks you made.
Cut along the lines you drew and then along the score lines.
Your paper should look like this:
And, your mechanism is complete when it looks like this. 
Then, you can continue with the steps in my original post to complete the inside of the card.
Adhere the pop up inside card to the card base.
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.
