How to Use Divi’s New Border Style Options on Your Website (Part 2)

Divi’s new border options add a ton of new possibilities to designing a new website with Divi’s built-in settings only. To help you illustrate some of the things you can do with the border options, we’re recreating the examples of the announcement post. In the first part of this post, we’ve handled 7 of the 13 examples. And in this post, we’ll be handling the remaining examples step by step.

We’re not going to share all of the settings of every module that is being used. We’re rather going to focus on the settings that’ll help you achieve the border results. Let’s take a look at the examples we’ll be recreating step by step before we dive into the tutorial.

How to Use Divi’s New Border Style Options on Your Website (Part 2)

Recreate Borders of Example #8

border

The Border Concept

This example makes use of both options you have within the Border subcategory; rounded corners and border styles. The border settings are made to each one of the tables individually, instead of all of them at once, because they’re slightly different from one another.

Row Settings

Column Structure

Start by adding a row with one column to an existing section.

border

Add Pricing Tables Module & Tables

Then, add a Pricing Tables Module to that row and add the tables to it.

First Pricing Table

Border Settings

Each pricing table needs the border settings individually. That’s because they slightly differ from one another. Open the first pricing table, the one on the left, and add the following settings to the Border subcategory:

  • Top Left: 6px
  • Bottom Left: 6px
  • Top Right: 0px
  • Bottom Right: 0px
  • Top Border Width: 10px
  • Top Border Color: #7272ff

border

Box Shadow Settings

Then, open the Box Shadow subcategory and use the following settings:

  • Box Shadow Horizontal Position: 0px
  • Box Shadow Vertical Position: 2px
  • Box Shadow Blur Strength: 50px
  • Box Shadow Spread Strength: 0px
  • Shadow Color: rgba(0,0,0,0.1)
  • Box Shadow Position: Outer Shadow

border

Second Pricing Table

Border Settings

The second pricing table, has instead, the following settings:

  • Top Left: 6px
  • Bottom Left: 6px
  • Top Right: 6px
  • Bottom Right: 6px
  • Top Border Width: 10px
  • Top Border Color: #09e1c0

border

Box Shadow Settings

Use the same box shadow as the one for the first pricing table.

border

Third Pricing Table

Border Settings

The last pricing table will need the following settings for the Border subcategory:

  • Top Left: 0px
  • Bottom Left: 0px
  • Top Right: 6px
  • Bottom Right: 6px

border

Box Shadow Settings

Again, the same settings apply to the Box Shadow subcategory.

Recreate Borders of Example #9

border

The Border Concept

This border concept allows you to create a border on the entire row. We’re using the same color for the row background and the border which helps us create some space between the column 2 background image and the row.

Row Settings

Column Structure

For this example, you will need to add a two-column row to an existing section.

border

Background Color

Then, open the row settings and add ‘#ffffff’ as the background color.

border

Column 2 Background Image

Then you can add all kinds of modules to that row, or, choose a column background images you’d like to appear within your row.

border

Sizing

Move on to the Design tab and add the following settings to the Sizing subcategory:

  • Use Custom Gutter Width: Yes
  • Gutter Width: 1
  • Equalize Column Heights: Yes

border

Border

Then, scroll down and add the following border style to your row:

  • Border Width: 20px
  • Border Color: #ffffff
  • Border Style: Solid

border

Box Shadow

Lastly, you can also add some box shadow to create more depth:

  • Box Shadow Horizontal Position: 0px
  • Box Shadow Vertical Position: 2px
  • Box Shadow Blur Strength: 67px
  • Box Shadow Spread Strength: 0px
  • Shadow Color: rgba(0,0,0,0.23)
  • Box Shadow Position: Outer Shadow

border

Recreate Borders of Example #10

The Border Concept

For the next example, we’re going to create a tablet that is half transparent. This, in combination with a gradient background, gives a beautiful result.

Section Settings

Gradient Background

Start by adding a new standard section and add a gradient background to it. In this example, we’ve used the following settings:

  • First Color: #ca70ff
  • Second Color: #a530ff
  • Gradient Type: Linear
  • Gradient Direction: 180deg
  • Start Position: 0%
  • End Position: 100%

border

Row Settings

Column Structure

Then, add a row with one column to the section you’ve created.

border

Background Color

Open the row settings and add ‘rgba(255,255,255,0.19)’ as the background color.

border

Spacing

Then, move on to the Design tab and add the following Custom Padding:

  • Top & Bottom: 2%
  • Right & Left: 5%

border

Border

Scroll down, open the Border subcategory and add the following settings to it:

  • Top Left: 30px
  • Bottom Left: 30px
  • Top Right: 30px
  • Bottom Right: 30px
  • Border Width: 5px
  • Border Color: rgba(255,255,255,0.07)
  • Border Style: Solid

border

Lastly, add the following box shadow to the row:

  • Box Shadow Vertical Position: 13px
  • Box Shadow Blur Strength: 64px
  • Box Shadow Spread Strength: -11px
  • Shadow Color: rgba(26,54,68,0.36)
  • Box Shadow Position: Outer Shadow

border

Add Video Module to Column

Lastly, add a Video Module to the column of your row and upload a video or insert a video link.

Recreate Borders of Example #11

The Border Concept

The next example of awesome border settings is one that is applied to an Image Module. You can create stunning results for your images by combining box shadows and borders and this example shows that off.

Image Module Settings

Border

Add an Image Module to an existing column and after adding the image, move on to the Design tab. Open the Border subcategory and add the following settings to the top and left side:

  • Border Width: 25px
  • Border Color: #333333

border

And the following settings to the right and bottom:

  • Border Width: 25px
  • Border Color: #fcd21d
    border

Box Shadow

Then, add the following box shadow as well:

  • Box Shadow Horizontal Position: 0px
  • Box Shadow Vertical Position: 0px

Recreate Borders of Example #12

The Border Concept

The following example allows you to create a bigger picture for the Blurb Modules you’re using on your website. Although there’s only a little difference between the modules, it’s enough to make them stand out from each other.

Row Settings

Column Structure

Start by adding two rows with both three columns.

border

Blurb Module Overall Settings

Spacing

The first thing we’ll be doing is adding all the settings that apply to all of the Blurb Modules. The Custom Padding of ’40px’ for each option is one of those settings.border

Border Style

Then, add the following top border to the Border subcategory:

  • Border Width: 6px
  • Border Color: #dddddd

border

The bottom will need the following settings:

  • Border Width: 4px
  • Border Color: #fcd21d

border

Lastly, add the following border style to the left and right side:

  • Border Width: 2px
  • Border Color: #dddddd

border

Clone Blurb Module Five Times

Once you’ve added all of the general settings to a Blurb Module, you can clone these five times and place them within the remaining columns. In the next part, we’re going to add the various rounded corners to each Blurb Module individually.

First Row Rounded Corners

Left Blurb Module

The first Blurb Module within the first row has the following rounded corners:

  • Top Left: 60px
  • Bottom Left: 0px
  • Top Right: 0px
  • Bottom Right: 60px

border

Middle Blurb Module

The second Blurb Module’s rounded corners are the following:

  • Top Left: 0px
  • Bottom Left: 60px
  • Top Right: 0px
  • Bottom Right: 60px

border

Right Blurb Module

The last Blurb Module of the first row has the following rounded corners:

  • Top Left: 0px

  • Top Left: 0px
  • Bottom Left: 60px
  • Top Right: 60px
  • Bottom Right: 0px

border

Middle Blurb Module

The middle one needs the following rounded corners:

  • Top Left: 60px
  • Bottom Left: 0px
  • Top Right: 60px
  • Bottom Right: 0px

border

Right Blurb Module

The last Blurb Module of the second row has the same rounded corners as the first Blurb Module in the first row:

  • Top Left: 60px
  • Bottom Left: 0px
  • Top Right: 0px
  • Bottom Right: 60px

border

Recreate Borders of Example #13

The Border Concept

The last example of this post helps you add a Polaroid effect to your images. This is, for instance, a great way to showcase images in a memorable way. We’re, again, using a combination of border settings and box shadow settings.

Image Module Settings

Border

Add an Image Module to an existing row and make use of the following settings for the top, right and left side:

  • Border Width: 13px
  • Border Color: #ffffff

The bottom is slightly different:

Clone Image Module as Many Times as Needed

To create the entire result, you can clone the Image Module as many times as you want and place them in the different columns. The only thing you’ll have to change is the image.
