CSS Battle: #15 - Overlap

In this article, I will solve a Overlap CSS Challenge on CSS Battle. Let's look at the problem first.

Problem

We need to create the following container by using CSS Properties only:
Overlap

Solution

So now look at the Solution and how we are going to achieve this.

HTML

<p> 
<a> 
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode
  • <p> : Circles
  • <a> : overlap of both circles

CSS

Now let's style the containers.

* {
  background: #09042a;
}

body {
  margin: 75;
}

p, a {
  border-radius: 1in;
  width: 150;
  height: 150;
}
p {
  background: #7b3f61;
  position: relative;
  overflow: hidden;
  box-shadow: 100px 0 #e78481;
}

a {
  position: absolute;
  left: 100;
}
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

Note: In CSS Battle you can use 100 instead of 100px. You don't need to define px in CSS. However, if you are using rem or %, you need to pass them separately. That's why in the above CSS code there are no units mostly. For more info visit here

Minify the code or CSS by using any CSS Minifier. It helps you to reduce the characters in the code which will increase the score.

Minified Version:

<p><a><style>*{background:#09042A}body{margin:75}p,a{border-radius:1in;width:150;height:150}p{background:#7B3F61;position:relative;overflow:hidden;box-shadow:100px 0 #E78481}a{position:absolute;left:100}
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

Wrapping up

Very nice solution, I didn't think about using overflow and so I was stuck with this challenge. Thanks
