Hello, guys In this tutorial we will try to solve above mention query. and also we will learn how to create an awesome CSS card design using HTML and CSS

First, we need to create three files index.html and style.css then we need to do code for it.

Step:1

Add below code inside index.html

<!DOCTYPE html>
<html lang="en">
  <head>
    <meta charset="UTF-8" />
    <title>Awesome Hover Effect</title>
    <meta name="viewport" content="width=device-width, initial-scale=1.0" />
    <meta http-equiv="X-UA-Compatible" content="ie=edge" />
    <link rel="stylesheet" href="style.css" />
    <link rel="preconnect" href="https://fonts.gstatic.com">
    <link href="https://fonts.googleapis.com/css2?family=Montserrat:wght@300;400;500;700&display=swap" rel="stylesheet">
  </head>
  <body>    
    <section class="container">
      <div class="card_outer">
        <div class="card">
          <div class="content">
            <h2 class="title">This is title</h2>
            <p class="copy">Lorem Ipsum is simply dummy text of the printing and typesetting industry.</p>
            <button class="btn">Read More</button>
          </div>
        </div>
        <div class="card">
          <div class="content">
            <h2 class="title">This is title</h2>
            <p class="copy">Lorem Ipsum is simply dummy text of the printing and typesetting industry.</p>
            <button class="btn">Read More</button>
          </div>
        </div>
        <div class="card">
          <div class="content">
            <h2 class="title">This is title</h2>
            <p class="copy">Lorem Ipsum is simply dummy text of the printing and typesetting industry.</p>
            <button class="btn">Read More</button>
          </div>
        </div>
        <div class="card">
          <div class="content">
            <h2 class="title">This is title</h2>
            <p class="copy">Lorem Ipsum is simply dummy text of the printing and typesetting industry.</p>
            <button class="btn">Read More</button>
          </div>
        </div>
      </div>
    </section>
  </body>
</html>

Step:2

Then we need to add code for style.css which code I provide in the below screen.

* {
    padding: 0;
    margin: 0;
    box-sizing: border-box;
    --d: 700ms;

.content {

  flex-direction: column;

  padding: 1rem;
  transition: transform var(--d) var(--e);

}
.btn:hover {

}
@media (hover: hover) and (min-width: 600px) {
  .card:after {
    transform: translateY(0);
  }
  .content {
    transform: translateY(calc(100% - 4.5rem));
  }
  .content > *:not(.title) {
    opacity: 0;
    transform: translateY(1rem);
    transition: transform var(--d) var(--e), opacity var(--d) var(--e);

  .card:hover,
