For my hidden gem, I used the wonderful Winter Town and a sort of spotlight technique. I also did something I rarely do…I didn’t color a single thing.  At first I wanted to white emboss it on navy card stock, but the image is so detailed, it just couldn’t be done. So I went in the reverse direction and stamped it with navy ink onto white card stock. Just the spotlight area was stamped again on a smaller, taller piece and I added some “snow” with the Ink Spots image and few snowflakes cut from the Snow die.

I used the Marble Feathers background on the navy card stock layers. You can see it a bit more on the card inside along with some trimmed off navy strips and some stamped snowflakes & one fussy cut snowflake.
