        <h1>Gradient Borders</h1>
        (With transparent background and border radius)

    </div>
    <hr>
    <p>
        There are many ways to create <b>gradient borders</b> for an element.
        If you looked it up, you probably found Chris Coyier's great article about
        <a href="https://css-tricks.com/gradient-borders-in-css/">Gradient Borders in CSS</a>,
        where he describes how to create gradient borders with <code>pseudo-element</code>
        and <code>border-image</code>.
    </p>
    <p>
        The problem is that one method only supports opaque backgrounds,
        and the other is incompatible with <code>border-radius</code>. So what do you
        do when you need an element with gradient borders, and rounded corners, and a transparent
        background?! You can use <code>background-image</code> for that.
    </p>

    <div class="btns">
        <button class="btn">Lorem</button>
        <button class="btn">ipsum</button>
        <button class="btn">dolor</button>
        <button class="btn">sit amet</button>
        <button class="btn">consectetur</button>
        <button class="btn">adipisicing</button>
        <button class="btn">elit.</button>
        <button class="btn">Ex vero</button>
        <button class="btn">maiores</button>
        <button class="btn">itaque id</button>
        <button class="btn">aperiam</button>
        <button class="btn">sequi</button>
    </div>

    <p>
        It uses a very similar method as the one I've used in my
        <a href="https://codepen.io/amit_sheen/pen/xxZeyjO">Dashed Border Generator</a>,
        only with 8 background areas instead of 4, which allows for the rounded-corners effect.
