Create a card flip animation using only HTML and CSS for a cool visual effect.

Hey, I am Ajink, and today in this blog, we’re going to create a card flip animation using only HTML and CSS. A card flip animation adds a cool visual effect to your webpage, providing an engaging user experience.

HTML Code: create index.html

<!DOCTYPE html>
<html lang="en">
<head>
  <meta charset="UTF-8">
  <meta name="viewport" content="width=device-width, initial-scale=1.0">
  <link rel="stylesheet" href="style.css">
  <title>Card Flip Animation</title>
</head>
<body>
  <div class="card-container">
    <div class="card">
      <div class="card-face card-front">
        <h2>Front Content</h2>
      </div>
      <div class="card-face card-back">
        <p>Back Content</p>
      </div>
    </div>
  </div>
</body>
</html>

HTML Code Explanation:

  • We have a basic HTML structure with a container div and a card div containing two faces: front and back.

CSS Code: create style.css

body {
  margin: 0;
  font-family: 'Arial', sans-serif;
  display: flex;
  align-items: center;
  justify-content: center;
  height: 100vh;
  background-color: #f0f0f0;
}

.card-container {
  perspective: 1000px;
}

.card {
  width: 200px;
  height: 300px;
  transform-style: preserve-3d;
  transition: transform 0.6s;
  cursor: pointer;
}

.card:hover {
  transform: rotateY(180deg);
}

.card-face {
  position: absolute;
  width: 100%;
  height: 100%;
  backface-visibility: hidden;
  display: flex;
  align-items: center;
  justify-content: center;
  box-shadow: 0 0 10px rgba(0, 0, 0, 0.1);
}

.card-front {
  background-color: #3498db;
  color: #fff;
}

.card-back {
  background-color: #fff;
  color: #333;
  transform: rotateY(180deg);
}

CSS Code Explanation:

  • The CSS provides styling for the card flip animation, including colors, shadows, and transforms.
  • The perspective property adds a depth effect, and rotateY is used to create the flip animation.
  • The backface-visibility: hidden property ensures that the back face is not visible during the flip.
