Card with an image and rounded borders


1 min read

If you have a card with an image at the top and text at the bottom, and it has a border with rounded corners, the image's corners don't also round. I found various ways round fixing this, but then it turned out the answer was obvious.

Card setup

Here's the basic set up for the card:

<div class="card one">
  <img src="" alt="Kitten">
  <p>Some card text here</p>  

It comes with a cute kitten photo...

.card {
  border: 3px solid red;
  border-radius: 0.5em;

I made the border big and red so it's obvious. You can see the the corners of the image are over the border: Image over border

The solution

.card {
  overflow: hidden;

Image with rounded edges One line is all that's needed. It's obvious, in retrospect. overflow: hidden means that anything outside the edge of the card should be hidden. The edge of the card starts on the inside of the border. So it therefore cuts off the corners of the image to fit the border.
