How To Create a Card

Step 1) Add HTML:

Example

<div class="card">
  <img src="img_avatar.png" alt="Avatar" style="width:100%">
  <div class="container">
    <h4><b>John Doe</b></h4>
    <p>Architect & Engineer</p>
  </div>
</div>


Step 2) Add CSS:

Example

.card {
    /* Add shadows to create the "card" effect */
    box-shadow: 0 4px 8px 0 rgba(0,0,0,0.2);
    transition: 0.3s;
}

/* On mouse-over, add a deeper shadow */
.card:hover {
    box-shadow: 0 8px 16px 0 rgba(0,0,0,0.2);
}

/* Add some padding inside the card container */
.container {
    padding: 2px 16px;
}
