Link bookmarks like Notion

I was wondering if it would be possible to incorporate a third way of creating links to websites in obsidian apart from embeds using iframe and regular hyperlinks. I really like the link bookmarks feature in Notion which gives a short introduction to the website being linked along with a preview image. Here is how it looks :

Use case or problem

Apart from looking good visually, this feature would make finding links and recognizing required websites easier later on.

Proposed solution

I don’t know much of how obsidian works at the back end but I think this could be done with css which would be triggered by using a specific syntax

Current workaround (optional)

To my knowledge, there are no workarounds for this but I think it should not be hard to implement with css snippets.

It would be great to have this feature in a future update if possible otherwise if this feature can be made possible by using css snippets or a plugin that would work too.

@Thiews it does, thanks. Styles are broken but it is a good base for tweaking
