2013 National Stationery Show – Colors Part II – Yellow-Based Greens

Acidic Greens – from Chartreuse to Olive

Yellow-based greens were big at the show, and seem to have gone even more acidic than past years. From bright chartreuses to rich olives, the gold in the green was a favorite theme.

There are few companies who use the color green as well as Rifle Paper Co., and the sumptuous combo of olives and chartreuses on this calendar is just another example of their gorgeous greens.

This silly-fun dino card in chartreuse and navy from Hello!Lucky is perfect for the small fry (or as an old-as-the-dinosaurs reference for that good friend of yours for whom there are never too many “you’re gettin’ old” cards).
