CSS Box Shadow


CSS box-shadow Property

The CSS box-shadow property applies shadow to elements.

In its simplest use, you only specify the horizontal shadow and the vertical shadow:

This is a yellow <div> element with a black box-shadow

Example

div {
  box-shadow: 10px 10px;
}

Next, add a color to the shadow:

This is a yellow <div> element with a grey box-shadow

Example

div {
  box-shadow: 10px 10px grey;
}

Next, add a blur effect to the shadow:

This is a yellow <div> element with a blurred, grey box-shadow

Example

div {
  box-shadow: 10px 10px 5px grey;
}

Cards

You can also use the box-shadow property to create paper-like cards:
