For my project I made a Christmas/ Winter card that I will be sending to Operation Write Home. The paper I used is Recollections and I haven't used it or anything else on my card since last December, except the Embossing powder. The blue ribbon is from my stash.

 This is one of the tags from the tag page in the collection I used. I mounted it on white Card stock 1/4" larger than the tag.

I embossed the sentiment in Silver Ranger ultra Fine Embossing powder. And I mounted it on a white card blank A2 sized.

I added the mounted tag to the front with pop dots. 

Thank you for stopping by, the next stop is Connie's Blog
