Is there a card gimmick available or described in literature which opens on one side vertically, but if the deck is handled on the other side, it can't be found. I need it to vanish the card selected(forced) using riffle peek. Thanks.

Yes. I'm sure it is described in various places, but I know the gimmick you speak of from Lit (2018) by Dan White and Dan Hauss. In that trick, the gimmick is used to force a card using a riffle peek, which is then shown to have vanished from the deck and appears folded into a matchbook.

Thank you, but is the flap card same in feel as regular cards. If I give the deck to the spectator and ask them to find their card, will a "particular card" feel different to them while going through the deck?

It depends on how you make the card. In Lit, the deck is rotated and ribbon spread on a table to show the chosen card is missing. The gimmicked card is a double (two cards glued together) so it will feel like a double, at least to magicians. There are obviously ways around the card being a double, but that seems to be going to great lengths for little payoff. I don't know the application in terms of how the effect this is being used in is structured, but shouldn't slowly spreading the cards through the magician's hands be enough? The deck can even be fairly ribbon spread on a surface/table for an even better display. Are you really wanting to put the deck in the specatator's hands? Even if you do, is there really much chance in all that looking they will feel a double card in amongst 51 other cards?
