Two-Column / Card Layout with Hover Image and Text

Hello!

I’m trying to create a hover image with text in the column / card next to it. I’m not sure where I’m going wrong, but every time I add in the hover image to my 2-column card layout code, the text ends up underneath the image in the same column. Can someone help me figure out what I need to fix in my code? Thanks so much!

There are a few bits of code that don’t make much sense, like the 150% width on the container, then the overwriting of the column.
But I think the whole thing could be simplified by abandoning the old float method and bringing it up to date with flex box.

This is an example with flex.
