Leprechaun House Pop Up Card

I was hoping to have the tutorial for this St. Patrick's Day pop up card up today, but it isn't happening. I've been working practically non-stop on this card since yesterday morning. Every step took longer than I expected!

So, today, you get to see pictures. Tomorrow (maybe?) the tutorial.

The house pop up folds down the center. I cut the door out so that it would swing free, and unfolded, as the card front folds. The leprechaun is attached to the front of the house with a simple box. He folds to the side when the card closes. The rainbow is attached through the center of the roof with an unbend paper clip. It swings back and forth when the card is open.
