HTML Card Style with Background Image

Written by @kerixa 30 March 2021

Cards are used to display summaries or product categories and many other sections of the website. The following code contains a card with a specific style that you can use for sections of your website. This card includes a box with a background image which the background color of the text changes on mouse hover. Besides, the whole card acts as a link and by clicking on any parts of the box, the page redirects to a desired URL. In this card, there are two parts, one is the title and the other is the descriptive text that is displayed briefly. Both of these writings are in white with a dark color for the background.
