Card

Cards are a popular and flexible UI component.

Basics

A card is just an element with a .card class applied. You can put any kind of content inside. Make sure you wrap your content in a .card-section element in order to achieve the traditional card look.

A card container has no padding, allowing you to place full-bleed images inside. Use the .card-divider and .card-section classes to sub-divide a card.

Browser Bug (IE 11 - Flexbug): On IE 11, when using the card with image, you may see a lot of whitespace under each image that happens to match the original image size. The bug can be reproduced here on an IE11 browser. Use .card-image class to wrap your image to resolve this.

Card Divider

You can also include a .card-divider element as a title, footer or to break up content.

Images

Images play nicely with cards. Simply include one outside of the .card-section element to span nicely to the edges. Or move the image inside the .card-section to have padding around the image.
