Cute Tag Request

I recently attended a girls weekend with my best friend Tracy.  The whole weekend just scrapbooking and relaxing and having fun at the Oakwood Inn in Grand Bend Ontario.  So beautiful and the food was amazing!!  We met some fantastic ladies and made new friends while we were there.  I had made this tag and had a request to post how I did it so here is the tutorial for everyone to share!  Merry Christmas from Crafty Kat!
This is one of my favorite tags from last year.  I started with the large Scallop Circle from Sizzix and cut one using Whisper White Card stock cut at 4 1/2x 4 1/2.
Next I took a piece of Pool Party cut to 4x4 and ran it through the Big Shot with the polka dot embossing folders.  I tore four pieces of scrap Whisper White card stock and attached it to the bottom of the Pool Party layer.  Tear these pieces towards yourself so that you get a better torn edge look.
Next I took the Pool Party layer with the torn Whisper White pieces attached to it and ran it through the Big Shot using a Circle Bigz die. Attach this layer to the scallop circle layer.
Next I used a two way glue pen to add glue to the top of each of the torn layers and added dazzling diamonds to it.
The next step!  I used scrap Whisper White card stock and stamped 4 of the polka dot stamp from Pennant Parade stamp set from Stampin UP!  I stamped them in Wild Wasabi Ink and punched them out.  Then I stamped two of the Stamp that looks like garland on the tree also in Wild Wasabi ink and attached the "trees" to the right hand side of the tag.
To create the layered tree I folded each of the polk a dot stamped scallop shapes in half and glued the backs to one another and the last ones were glued directly to the tag.  I added a button to the top of the tree and a bit of ribbon to the top.  I also punched a hole and added bakers twine so that the tag could be used as an ornament after the gift was given.!  Any questions please feel free to contact me via
