In this demo, we will share a beautiful card flip animation with you. In this post, we will use basic CSS perspective & transformation properties.

Let's start with the card design. 

The size(width & height) of the card is 300 X 400. In the demo the size is fixed you can modify it according to your requirements. 

The background of the card is set using the data attribute(dd-bg) using jQuery. 

 <div class="front" dd-bg="/..path..to..image../">


HTML Structure

 <div class="dd-card bottom">
  <div class="front" dd-bg="images/5.jpg">
    <label class="fornt-caption">Design Drastic</label>
  </div>
  <div class="back">
    <h2 class="dd-title">Design Drastic</h2>
    <p class="dd-text">
      Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipisicing elit. Eius sequi natus doloribus voluptatem debitis odio sapiente voluptate architecto. Incidunt, et. Voluptas, voluptates eum!
    </p>
    <ul class="dd-card__link">
      <li>
        <a href="#">
          <img src="svg/facebook.svg" />
        </a>
      </li>
      <li>
        <a href="#">
          <img src="svg/twitter.svg" />
        </a>
      </li>
      <li>
        <a href="#">
          <img src="svg/linkedin.svg" />
        </a>
      </li>
    </ul>
  </div>
</div>

To change the card effect you just need to change the main class name that combined with dd-card class.
