The inspiration for today’s card comes from the Cherry On Top Designer Series Paper Stack, which coordinates with Watermelon Wonder, from the Red-Orange Color Group. Cucumber Crush, of the Green-Yellow Color Group, and Crushed Curry, from the Yellow-Orange Color Group, are also included in the palette. I call this combination Analogous Plus. Just skip over Orange and Yellow and you have these colors side-by-side. You have to consolidate the Split Tertiary Groups in this case, but you know I do that at my convenience!
Originally, I termed this combination Wide-Angle Analogous, as described in my article, “Let’s Call It a Wide-Angle Analogous Scheme”. I changed it to Analogous Plus to cover a few more variations.
The colors in the Cherry on Top palette all combine to create a cheery card. I’m sending this one to someone who has had a bad day. I chose Watermelon Wonder and Cucumber Crush because they match the cherry pattern. I added Crushed Curry because I wanted contrast for the bowl of cherries in the sentiment. This color combination is also good for Birthday, Party, Celebration, Get Well Soon, Friendship, Thank You and other cheerful or cheer up occasions.
