        }
        .label1
        {
            font-family: 'Montserrat' , sans-serif;
            color: #fff;
            font-size: 25px;
        }
        .button1
        {
            font-family: 'Poiret One' , cursive;
            font-size: 25px;
            color: #fff;
            font-weight: bolder;
            background-color: #34495e;
            padding: 10px;
        }
        .textbox1
        {
            font-family: 'Bree Serif' , serif;
             font-size: 25px;

            width:650px;
            padding: 10px;
        }
    </style>

<body>
    <form id="form1" runat="server">
    <div>
        <asp:Label runat="server" ID="lbl1" CssClass="label1" Text="This Label is styled using Google Fonts - Montserrat"></asp:Label>

        <asp:Button runat="server" CssClass="button1" Text="This Button is styled using Google Fonts - Poiret One" />
        <br />
        <br />

    </div>
    </form>
