CSS DEMOSCSS3 - Borders, Shadows and Radial Gradients

Date : 7th March 2014

For all modern browsers


Just a simple demonstration to show the power of CSS 'border', 'box-shadow' and 'radial-gradient' together with ::before and ::after pseudo-elements.

The code for this demos is VERY simple:

<div class="pebble">
<div class="spider">

It is just a pity that Safari has not been updated to use un-prefixed styles and still uses non-standard '-webkit-radial-gradient'.

Because of all the time and effort spent in producing this demonstration I would ask that you respect my copyright.

  1. If you are using this on a personal web site then please retain the copyright comment in the stylesheet.
    A support donation is now required for this demonstration.
  2. If you are using this on a commercial web site, or as a paying job for a client, then please email me asking for permission - stu{at} and again a support donation is required.
  3. If you are having problems integrating any of my demonstrations into your website then I now offer a service to fault find and correct any errors that you may have introduced. Please email me for more information.
