How to change each Dawn's Multicolumn section column a different color

Hi. I can't figure out how to make each column in the multicolumn section a different color. To be clear, I'm not asking about the section's background, the title, the text, etc. I'm specifically asking how, in a 3-column arrangement, to make column 1 red, column 2 white, and column 3 blue.

 

I know the following is how to change the column colors, collectively.

.multicolumn-card {
  background-color: blue;
}

I've identified the individual column class, at least I think I did, but nothing with it is working.

#Slide-template--22241486864687__multicolumn_FjCd7N-2 {
  background-color: blue;
}

I know the answer likely involves a unique to my site class, but I don't have a store link I can share, so a general lesson on what to do will be much appreciated from me (and future viewers). Thank you!

Hi @hostilearth ,

May I suggest to update code these steps:

1. Go to Store Online-> theme -> edit code

2. Add sections/multicolum-custom.liquid

3. Copy code below then paste to file
