Modern CSS Cards
  • Last Updated : 29 Jan, 2021

A card is a flexible box containing some padding around the content. It includes the animation which displays only the useful information to the user. It replaces the use of panels, wells, and thumbnails. It can be used in a single container called a card. To make animated Modern CSS Cards, you need to have a bit of HTML and CSS Knowledge as well, as it would be useful for creating it.

Example:
