Midnight Snow.

This simple design features several techniques.  The background panel is dark card which has trees and snowflakes stamped onto it in two colours of interferance ink.  The images shine in varying degrees of brightness as the card is turned in the light.  The main focal embellishment is stamped and heat embossed using a mix of blue and white embossing powder to give a frosty look to the tree.  Some strips of printed vellum are attached to the background with a couple of dabs of glue, giving the appearance of snow drifts.  The frosty tree is cut out and attached to the panel with dimentional glue.  A couple of punched out trees are added to cover the glue spots used to attach the vellum.  Glitter is applied to the centre of the snowflakes.  Another slightly larger panel of white card is stamped with pine branches to create a frame.  Both panels are matted and layered onto the base card.
