This post want ’s to bring up one of the great features introduced in CSS3, the box-shadow property. Now you can stop using images for displaying box-shadows, with just a few CSS lines you can create awesome effects. In this post, we will learn to add shadow effects on all four sides of a container:

The CSS3 code:
div {
    border:1px solid #EEE9E9;
    padding:30px;
    height:50px;
    width:200px;
    margin:50px;
    float:left;
}

 .bottom{
    -webkit-box-shadow:0 12px 10px -8px #00688B;
    -moz-box-shadow:0 12px 10px -8px #00688B;
    box-shadow:0 12px 10px -8px #00688B;
}

.top{
    -webkit-box-shadow:0 -10px 15px -10px #00688B;
    -moz-box-shadow:0 -10px 15px -10px #00688B;
    box-shadow:0 -10px 15px -10px #00688B;
}

.inset-top-bottom{
    -webkit-box-shadow:inset 0 8px 15px -8px #00688B,inset 0 -8px 15px -8px #00688B;
    -moz-box-shadow:inset 0 8px 15px -8px #00688B,inset 0 -8px 15px -8px #00688B;
    box-shadow:inset 0 8px 15px -8px #00688B,inset 0 -8px 15px -8px #00688B;
}

.left-right{
    -webkit-box-shadow:10px 0 12px -8px #00688B,-10px 0 12px -8px #00688B;
    -moz-box-shadow:10px 0 12px -8px #00688B,-10px 0 12px -8px #00688B;
    box-shadow:10px 0 12px -8px #00688B,-10px 0 12px -8px #00688B;
}

.left-right-bottom{
    -webkit-box-shadow:10px 0 12px -8px #00688B,-10px 0 12px -8px #00688B,0 8px 12px -6px #00688B;
    -moz-box-shadow:10px 0 12px -8px #00688B,-10px 0 12px -8px #00688B,0 8px 12px -6px #00688B;
    box-shadow:10px 0 12px -8px #00688B,-10px 0 12px -8px #00688BB,0 8px 12px -6px #00688B;
}
The HTML code:
<body>
        <div class="bottom">
            CSS3 bottom shadow
        </div>
             <div class="top">
            CSS3 top shadow
        </div>
         <div class="inset-top-bottom">
            CSS3 inset top-bottom shadow
        </div>
             <div class="left-right">
            CSS3 left-right shadow
        </div>
             <div class="left-right-bottom">
            CSS3 left-right-bottom shadow
        </div>             
 </body>
 
And the output will be:
