Gotta Love Packaging

I picked up some Tim Holtz embossing folders the other day (actually I bought them, honest, I have a receipt, empty bag and everything).  When I took them out of the package, I really liked the product description  paper inside.  So I cut it down to A2 size and used my new embossing folder on it to use as the front of this card.  I also cut out the mini pictures of the 4 embossing folders in the package and after backing them in black CS attached 2 of them to the card. The self stick craft border at the bottom is an endangered species, retired by CTMH.  I use it sparingly, but liked it for this card.  The red dog tag is a cricut design to which I added 'celebrate', a couple glitter embossed star bursts, and black distressing.
