Cards

Overview

The card component is used to provide a brief summary of content or a task, often with a link to more detail. Cards are frequently displayed alongside other cards to group related content or tasks.

Cards can contain multiple elements, such as text, images, links and call to action buttons, in any combination.

Basic

With an image

The card images naturally fill to the full width of its parent element (the card), which leave their height as fluid.

The minimum image size is 750 x 422 pixels. For best results, use images with an aspect ratio of 16:9.

Clickable

For cards that contain a single link, the hit area for that link can be made to wrap the entire card. This feature provides additional visual cues (e.g. a shadow) to the user that the entire visual bounds of the card is clickable.

To make a clickable card, add .stretched-link to a link to make its containing block clickable and qg-card__clickable on the container. For more information, please see the Bootstrap documentation.
