Make Your Own Scratch Off Card

I recently signed up for a few fun swaps on Swap Bot and wanted to share with you all a fun technique I learned while working on one of my swaps.  The swap I'm referring to is a literary postcard swap where individuals from different countries send interesting postcards to each other.  Where does the "literary" part come in?  Well, instead of a message of greeting on the postcard, we have been asked to write out a paragraph or two from a book we love.  And just in case our recipient can't work out the book, we also need to hide the book title somewhere on the postcard.
Well, I am not particularly clever at hiding phrases or hints of a phrase within other words (ciphers are not my forte!), so I decided to use the good old game scratch card method of "hiding" my book's title.  A quick online search yielded multiple tutorials for making your own scratch off cards, here are three similar, but slightly different, ones I particularly liked.
