Getting Started.

Here's how to get started with creating an animating flashcard:

  • Open Figma, create two flashcards as shown below in the diagram in a new file.


  • Using "Shift+H" keys, flip the back flashcard horizontally and also the text. Later on add the icon.
  • Create another copy of the front and the back cards, the top cards will be front and back, whereas the bottom cards will be interchanged with respect to their position.


  • Align the cards vertically onto each other as shown in the diagram.


  • Create components and then combine them as variants.


  • Make the necessary connections as shown in the diagram with the help of the Prototype.


  • Create a flow point on the frame and play it to view the animated flashcards.(Here's a preview of the animation hit the link below).
