Border Around Each Blog List for alternating side by side layout

Recommended Posts

On my blog's home page, I have the posts listed in alternating side by side blog layout. I am looking to wrap each post with a border. I want the border to butt up to the image and then follow and go around the text. I have found how to make a border on JUST the image, but can't figure out how to code the entire listed post (image and excerpt).

Blog listings are not as easy to redesign or enhance as are summary block items. If you use a summary block page as you main blog lising page, you will be able to make all kinds of visual changes using code. My site has my own design for blog posts. I added a drop shadow border but it would not be hard to make it any kind of border. Here is a code example for a simple border. 

.sqs-block-summary-v2 .summary-item {
border-style: solid;
  border-color: red;
  border-width: 2px;
