Use It Up Surprises

Today I'm going to show you a couple more quick and easy cards made from pieces found in my "Press-Out Victorian Christmas Book".  For the background, I covered some plaid patterned paper with gold metallic lattice.  I matted the focal and glued it to the center, adding a little sentiment below the basket.

The tricky part of this card is the focal itself.  The center oval is actually scored near the bottom and folds forward to reveal a little message:

Here's a similar one where I haven't taken a picture of the hidden sentiment, and didn't put the lattice.  Instead I tied in the gold of the ornate frame by drawing a gold border around the card itself, and again on the inside of the green border.  I used my gold metallic Sharpie for this.  The sentiment below the focal is an outline sticker.
