The circular carousel module allows you to have some text, an overlay, and possibly a background image. It has a hover effect, which is optional. You can even assign a link.
Some demos are below.
Note: it is not recommended with this module to have a huge card width as they will overlap in the carousel. If you have to have a large card width, please only show one item at a time.
The slider makes use of the popular Owl Carousel.
