Create an animated greeting card using CSS animations

Hey, I am Ajink and today in this blog, we’re going to create an animated greeting card using CSS animations.

HTML Code: create a index.html file

<!DOCTYPE html>
<html lang="en">
<head>
  <meta charset="UTF-8">
  <meta name="viewport" content="width=device-width, initial-scale=1.0">
  <link rel="stylesheet" href="style.css">
   <title>Animated Greeting Card</title>
</head>
<body>
  <div class="card">
    <div class="greeting">Happy New Year!</div>
    <div class="fireworks"></div>
  </div>
</body>
</html>

HTML Code Explanation:

  • We start with a basic HTML structure, linking to an external stylesheet (style.css) .
  • Inside the body tag, we have a div with the class card that contains two child elements: one for the greeting message and another for the animated fireworks.

CSS Code: create a style.css

body {
  display: flex;
  align-items: center;
  justify-content: center;
  height: 100vh;
  margin: 0;
  background-color: #f0f0f0;
}

.card {
  position: relative;
  width: 300px;
  height: 200px;
  border: 2px solid #ccc;
  border-radius: 10px;
  overflow: hidden;
}

.greeting {
  text-align: center;
  font-size: 18px;
  padding: 20px;
  background-color: #3498db;
  color: #fff;
}

.fireworks {
  position: absolute;
  width: 100%;
  height: 100%;
  background-image: url('https://gallery.yopriceville.com/var/resizes/Free-Clipart-Pictures/Fireworks/Red_Firework_PNG_Transparent_Clipart.png?m=1610454539');
  background-size: cover;
  animation: fireworksAnimation 4s infinite;
  opacity: 0.8;
}

@keyframes fireworksAnimation {
  0%, 100% {
    transform: scale(1);
  }
  50% {
    transform: scale(1.1);
  }
}

CSS Code Explanation:

  • The CSS starts by setting up the overall styling. The body is styled to be a flex container, centering its content both vertically and horizontally.
  • The card class represents the greeting card. It has a defined size, rounded corners, and a border.
  • The greeting class styles the message, giving it a centered position, specific font size, padding, and background color.
  • The fireworks class sets the background image to ‘fireworks.png’ and applies a CSS animation named fireworksAnimation to create the animated effect.

Conclusion:
