Recap of the Code

This CSS uses the following.

  1. A media query to execute the code below only for larger devices. For anything smaller than 1025 px, the design becomes responsive by stacking the content boxes.
  2. A min-height property for the content boxes to ensure each box has the same height inside their container columns.
  3. Setting align-items to flex-end on the button components to force them to the bottom of their container columns.

If you only want snippets, not all of the code, then copy what you need from here.

/* Only do this fancy stuff for devices larger than a tablet. */
@media only screen and (min-width: 1025px) {
  .content-container {
    display: flex;
    flex-flow: column;
    flex: 1 200px;
    min-height: 450px; /* Change this to what you need. */
  /* Need to force the width for the paragraph for some reason. */
  .content-container p {
    min-width: 300px !important;
  /* Ground the CTA button. */
  .fusion-button-wrapper {
    flex: 1 100px;
    display: flex;
    align-items: flex-end; /* Ground the button . */
    justify-content: left; /* left | center | right */
