Default Handsome hunter..Do you like this color?

I was wondering if you all liked handsome hunter? I don't have it, but you know that a lot of times the colors don't look the way they do in the catty. I just got the hunter ribbon thinking it would go with garden green, but I think it's a little too dark. Anyway, I really don't like glorious green at all. I had it(just traded it), and I thought it was too blue. I need a good green for my christmas cards. I'm going to do some traditional, and some not, but for the traditional I need a normal green. So what do you think of handsome hunter?

Yes, and love it with real red for a traditional card or a cream CS.
Here is the card I made last year for Christmas. They are 5.5 inches square and I had to special purchase 6 inch envies and pay extra postage because they were square, but I loved making them.

Glorious green is like christmas green, garden green works for xmas also. The handsome hunter is very dark...it is a deep, deep green. I really liked Forest foliage for christmas, and made sure I got the reinker before they did aways with it.

I like Handsome Hunter (especially for masculine cards) but for Christmas I like Artichoke a lot better.

I would use Handsome Hunter unless you wanted to get into the Bold Bright colors.

I love the idea of HH but find that I don't use it as much as I thought I would. I will try harder!

I would not say it is my favorite color--but I like it sooooooooooo much better than the old Forest Foilage. It is still a little too blue.

I don't think there is a green I don't like, (I'm a Girl Scout) but this is way up on my list.

I use all the greens I can get my hands on, more variety the better!

I loved forest foliage for Christmas and used it alot (ordered lots of cardstock before it went bye-bye)
I am starting to use handsome hunter more now but the artichoke is my true favorite, I think I reach for that the most..at least for now.

I prefer Always Artichoke. I am using that on my Christmas cards, last year I used Garden Green.

I love the hunter green. I used it on this 'lifted' card idea for my Christmas cards. http:////www.splitcoaststampers.com/...36892&cat=4690

I used the brushed copper just changed the blue to the hunter and used the hunter ribbon. A very simple and beautiful card!

I like Handsome Hunter. I think I will be using it to make christmas cards with Cranberry Crisp and Brushed Gold. This color is perfect for Christmas but I have hard time using it any other time. Maybe that I should participate in the color challenges?!

I like Handsome Hunter with Blush Blossom. I made a few neat cards with it. The BB tones it down just a bit. JMHO

I love handsome hunter. My two favorite colors (in SU terms) are handsome hunter and bravo burgundy, which happened to be my wedding colors almost 5 yrs. ago.
