Create the Basic HTML Structure

  <title></title>
  <style>
  </style>
</head>
<body>
</body>
</html>

Create the html container

Create a html container named card with h1 and h2 inside. Here &nbsp is whitespace and &bull is bullet point.

<div class='card'>
  <h1>BOBBY SHOWALTER</h1><h2>html&nbsp;&bull;&nbsp;css&nbsp;&bull;&nbsp;wordpress&nbsp;&bull;&nbsp;responsive design</h2>
</div>
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

Enter Basic Styling

Enter the basic styling for body and import the fonts you want to use.

@import url(https://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Raleway:400);
@import url(https://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Oswald:700);
html {
  background-color: #4a4036;
  font-size: 62.5%;
}
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

Style the Card

Style the card with the css below -

.card {
  background: url("https://i.imgur.com/94AlaBk.png");
  box-shadow: 0px 4px 6px #181818;
  height: 36rem;
  margin: 10rem auto;
  position: relative;
  width: 72rem;
}
.card:before, .card:after {
  background-color: rgba(242, 88, 22, 0.8);
  box-shadow: 1px 2px 1px #fff, inset 0px 1px 2px #993409, 1px 2px 1px #fff;
  content: "";

.card:before {
  top: 2.5rem;
  left: 2.5rem;
}
.card:after {
  top: 33rem;
  left: 2.5rem;
}

Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

Hello dear Its Aomi

i just found your article and i like it. The way you talk about CSS Bussiness card is interesting.
many thanks for the article it is just great!! It looks very promising and your business-card thoughts are interesting. Many thanks for your inspiring ideas.

i am currently working on some issues - that have to do with the CSS and google fonts.

to begin with the beginning:i have found out that my wordpress-site fetches two google fonts:

one of them is montserrat

i decided to host them locally. so i have to

a. fetch the fonts
b. correct the css code

with the following tool i fetch them

google-webfonts-helper.herokuapp.c...

here i have the option to add the paths - to customize the path in the css-data

/* montserrat-regular - latin / u/font-face { font-family: 'Montserrat'; font-style: normal; font-weight: 400; src: url('../fonts/montserrat-v25-latin-regular.eot'); / IE9 Compat Modes / src: local(''), url('../fonts/montserrat-v25-latin-regular.eot?#iefix') format('embedded-opentype'), / IE6-IE8 / url('../fonts/montserrat-v25-latin-regular.woff2') format('woff2'), / Super Modern Browsers / url('../fonts/montserrat-v25-latin-regular.woff') format('woff'), / Modern Browsers / url('../fonts/montserrat-v25-latin-regular.ttf') format('truetype'), / Safari, Android, iOS / url('../fonts/montserrat-v25-latin-regular.svg#Montserrat') format('svg'); / Legacy iOS */ } Customize folder prefix (optional):

and now i have to add a path to set the correct path - (that means to customize the path )

../fonts/

some additional thought: what makes me wonder is the fact that some of the examples show full paths as reference - others dont:

see the following examples;

a. wp-ninjas.de/wordpress-google-font...

url("https://wp-ninias.de/fonts/muilti-latin-300.woff2") format (
url("https://wp-ninias.de/fonts/muilti-latin-300.woff") format (

b. pixelgrade.com/docs/advanced-custo...

Copy the URL Path field and paste it before each URL in the Embed Code field. The example code will look like this:

@font-face {
font-family: 'Name of the font';
src: url('http://yourwebsite.com/wp-content/uploads/fonts/11148/name-of-the-font-file.woff2') format('woff2'),
url('http://yourwebsite.com/wp-content/uploads/fonts/11148/name-of-the-font-file.woff') format('woff');
}

c. themeisle.com/blog/custom-fonts-wo...

Once the file is in place, open up your child theme’s stylesheet. Now you’ll need to call on that font so you can use it, via a snippet that should look like this:

`

@font-face {
font-family: New Font;
src: url(yourwebsite.com/wp-content/themes/...);
font-weight: normal;
}

`

and now compare it with the following example here:

  1. Copy CSS: (default is Best Support) Modern Browsers Choose Best Support if old browsers still need to be supported. Formats in this snippet: [eot,woff,woff2,ttf,svg]

Code:
/* montserrat-regular - latin */
@font-face {
font-family: 'Montserrat';
font-style: normal;
font-weight: 400;
src: url('../fonts/montserrat-v25-latin-regular.eot'); /* IE9 Compat Modes */
src: local(''),
url('../fonts/montserrat-v25-latin-regular.eot?#iefix') format('embedded-opentype'), /* IE6-IE8 */
url('../fonts/montserrat-v25-latin-regular.woff2') format('woff2'), /* Super Modern Browsers */
url('../fonts/montserrat-v25-latin-regular.woff') format('woff'), /* Modern Browsers */
url('../fonts/montserrat-v25-latin-regular.ttf') format('truetype'), /* Safari, Android, iOS */
url('../fonts/montserrat-v25-latin-regular.svg#Montserrat') format('svg'); /* Legacy iOS */

see the helper-tool google-webfonts-helper.herokuapp.c...

**the question: **so the question is: how to set the path correct for the CSS... which path should we use here!?

Dear Its Aomi - i look forward to hear from you

greetings
