Those are basically two layers: On the bottom layer there's the blue (in
green) gradient, the snowflakes are on a transparent second layer. To
transitional effect, apply a black-to-white gradient as a layer mask to
layer ('Layers > Add Layer Mask', with the default setting; then apply
gradient to this layer, and as a third step, 'Apply Layer Mask'.
Finally, merge the two
layers with 'Flatten Image' or CTRL+M (Merge Visible Layers). That's
