CSS Cards Layout with Flexbox

Flexbox allows you to create a responsive CSS cards layout with minimal code. The example in this snippet will use a media object for each card, but technically the cards could be just about any kind of content.

The HTML will look like this:

<main class="container">
  <div class="card">
    <img src="image.png" class="img">
    <div class="content">
      <h3>Card Title</h3>
      <p>Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipiscing elit, sed do eiusmod tempor incididunt ut labore et dolore magna aliqua.</p>
  <!-- more cards here... -->

Code language: JavaScript (javascript)

I’ve used an image in the HTML code above, but note that in the demo I’m using a <div> as a mock image element in each card. The mock element is just for demonstration purposes. As mentioned, the content could be anything, including a real image.

The pertinent CSS looks like this:

.container {
  display: flex;
  flex-wrap: wrap;
  justify-content: space-around;

.card {
  width: 30%;
  display: flex;
Code language: CSS (css)

No floats or other old-school techniques needed, the cards will just work using these basic styles. The rest of the styles found in the demo below are for aesthetic purposes.

The CSS uses justify-content: space-around and a width of 30% on each card. You can adjust these if you want smaller or larger cards or if you want to use space-between instead.

The layout of the cards in a narrow viewport causes the cards to display on separate lines (which is fine for smaller devices), so you’ll have to View the CodePen demo in a separate window to see the full effect.

The demo for this CSS cards layout also includes a couple of buttons to allow you to interactively add and remove cards so you can see how the layout behaves using more or fewer cards.
