Welcome to Day 2 of learning CSS.

As i have told earlier, this series is inspired by this awesome youtube series in freecodecamp channel.

We will start with Typography on day-2. Open your code editor and create a new 2.1-Typography folder and two files index.html and sandbox.css inside it.

New folderNew folder

Next, in index.html put the basic html.

Now in sandbox.css, we will add code for the Cool Shadow first. We are just using a cursive font from google font and a text-shadow property for the cool effect.

It’s time to use clip-path property of CSS, to make the first image a perfect circle. Add below code for first image in sandbox.css

-webkit-clip-path: polygon(20% 0%, 0% 20%, 30% 50%, 0% 80%, 20% 100%, 50% 70%, 80% 100%, 100% 80%, 70% 50%, 100% 20%, 80% 0%, 50% 30%);
clip-path: polygon(20% 0%, 0% 20%, 30% 50%, 0% 80%, 20% 100%, 50% 70%, 80% 100%, 100% 80%, 70% 50%, 100% 20%, 80% 0%, 50% 30%);

}

It will transform the image to a cross.

Head again to clippy and edit the provided left arrow. You can drag any point.

.clip-image-4{
