Any Early Start on Christmas Gifts

Every year my sisters and I have a $5.00 gift exchange.  It has become a challenge to see who can get the best gift for the money.  I understand that my sisters asked to open my gifts 1st last year.  I almost always make my gifts and this year is no exception.  We have just lost our Father, so I knew I wanted to make something special for my sisters to help them remember.
I started by running the Globecraft ornament top layer through my embossing machine using a swirl folder.  I then mixed silver embossing powder with silver Art Glitter and heat embossed all the ornament pieces.  To get the red background, I used my Copic makers.  Did you know you can color your embossed images?  How fabulous!
The lace in the middle is left over from my wedding dress.  I colored it with my Copics as well so that it was not white.  I added a vintage photo of Dad.  All of the embellishments on the ornament are Epiphany Crafts.  I love the little charm in the middle of the ornament that says Dad (see 2nd photo)!  And these findings are just the perfect touch to make this a special ornament!
