How to make a Flip Card?

You may have seen Hover Cards on which when we hover, some action happens with some effects.
So today we are going to make a flip card
First of all What is flip card?
A card on which when we hover it will flip and show the back side. Flip Effect can be used for cards like visiting card, etc.

Let us get started!


<div class="flip-box">
  <div class="flip-box-inner">
    <div class="flip-box-front">
      <h2>Front Side</h2>
    <div class="flip-box-back">
      <h2>Back Side</h2>
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

2. CSS

.flip-box {
  background-color: transparent;
  width: 300px;
  height: 200px;
  border: 1px solid #f1f1f1;
  perspective: 1000px; /* Remove this if you don't want the 3D effect */

/* This is to position the front and back side */
.flip-box-inner {
  position: relative;
  width: 100%;
  height: 100%;
  text-align: center;
  transition: transform 0.8s;
  transform-style: preserve-3d;

/* Do an horizontal flip when you move hover on container */
.flip-box:hover .flip-box-inner {
  transform: rotateY(180deg);

/* Put the front and back side */
.flip-box-front, .flip-box-back {
  position: absolute;
  width: 100%;
  height: 100%;
  -webkit-backface-visibility: hidden; /* Safari */
  backface-visibility: hidden;

/* Style the front side */
.flip-box-front {
  background-color: #bbb;
  color: black;

/* Style the back side */
.flip-box-back {
  background-color: dodgerblue;
  color: white;
  transform: rotateY(180deg);
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode
