Welcome to part two of the blog post on indirectly applying section dividers to rows and modules! In part one of this post, we’ve applied section dividers to rows and created a unique and stunning design step by step. In the second part of this post, we’ll do the same thing but for modules.

For this approach, we’ll create two versions: one for desktop and one for tablet and phone. Although the tablet and phone version isn’t really required, it will help you add a section divider to each one of the modules individually on smaller screen sizes.

Let’s get to it!

Approach

  • We’re using more or less the same approach as we did in part 1 of this post
  • The divider and section background have the same color
  • That way, the divider and section background will blend until the divider comes in contact with another background color
  • In this case, we’re applying the section dividers to Blurb Modules
  • Unlike for rows, this will require placing the divider on top of section content
  • To make sure it doesn’t overlap the content of our module, we’ll add extra top padding to the module (in balance with the divider height)
  • You can choose to go with the desktop version only, but if you want to apply the section divider to each module as well, you’ll have to create a separate tablet and phone version
  • The tablet and phone version will place each module in a new section and have a section divider dedicated to that module in question

Recreate Desktop Version

Add New Section

Background Color

We’ll start creating the desktop version first. This version contains one section only. After adding a regular section, use ‘#abd7f2’ as its background color.

Top Divider

Go to the Design tab next and add the following Divider (containing the same color as your section):

  • Divider Style: Find in List
  • Divider Color: #abd7f2
  • Divider Height: 182px
  • Divider Arrangement: On Top of Section Content

Visibility

Since we’ll create a separate version for tablet and phone, we’ll need to disable this entire section on phone and tablet in the Visibility subcategory of the section settings.

Add New Row

Column Structure

Once you’re done with your section settings, add a row with the following column structure:

section dividers

Add Blurb Module to Column 1

Choose Icon

We’ll add a Blurb Module to the first column of this row. After modifying the settings of this Blurb Module, we’ll reuse it for the remaining columns. Add your content, open the Image & Icon subcategory and select your icon of choice.

Background Color

Then, add ‘#a95abc’ as the background color of your Blurb Module.

Icon Settings

Move on to the Design tab and change the appearance of your icon:

  • Icon Color: #ffffff
  • Icon Placement: Top
  • Use Icon Font Size: Yes
  • Icon Font Size: 52px

section dividers

Title Text Settings

Next, change your title text settings:

  • Title Font Weight: Ultra Bold
  • Title Text Alignment: Center
  • Title Text Color: #ffffff
  • Title Text Size: 27px

section dividers

Body Text Settings

We’ll also make some modifications to the body text of our Blurb Module:

  • Body Text Alignment: Center
  • Body Text Color: #ffffff

section dividers

Spacing

As you can notice in the print screen below, we’ll need quite some top padding for this Blurb Module. This will prevent the divider from overlapping the content your Blurb Module contains:

  • Top Padding: 150px
  • Right Padding: 20px
  • Bottom Padding: 50px
  • Left Padding: 20px

section dividers

Border

We’ll apply some rounded corners of ’20px’ to the bottom left and bottom right next.

Box Shadow

To create some depth, you can also enable the first box shadow option within your settings.

Clone Blurb Module & Place in Column 2

Change Background Color

We’re done modifying the Blurb Module in column 1. We can now clone this module, place it in the second column and change its background color to ‘#3c85c1’.

Clone Blurb Module & Place in Column 3

Change Background Color

Clone the Blurb Module once again, place it in column 3 and use ‘#7277f9’ as the background color.

Recreate Tablet & Phone Version

Add New Section

Background Color

The tablet and phone version requires a more delicate approach. The section divider remains part of the section, although it doesn’t show up at the beginning of the section. On smaller screen sizes, Blurb Modules will show up vertically instead of horizontally. That’s why we’ll add a separate section for each one of the Blurb Modules. Add a new regular section and, again, use ‘#abd7f2’ as its background color.

section dividers

Top Divider

We’re using the same top divider as we did for the desktop version:

  • Divider Style: Find in List
  • Divider Color: #abd7f2
  • Divider Height: 182px
  • Divider Arrangement: On Top of Section Content

section dividers

Spacing

We’ll add some custom padding to this section next:

  • Top Padding: 20px
  • Bottom Padding: 0px

section dividers

Visibility

This section is part of the tablet and mobile version so naturally, we’ll disable this section on Desktop within the Visibility subcategory.

section dividers

Add New Row

Column Structure

Instead of using a row with two columns, we’ll use one column.

section dividers

Clone Column 1 Blurb Module of Desktop Version & Place in Column

Change Sizing

We already have the desktop Blurb Module that we can clone and place in this column. The only thing we’ll need to modify is the Sizing:

  • Width: 63% (Tablet), 99% (Phone)
  • Module Alignment: Center

section dividers

Clone Entire Section Twice

Change Background Color of Blurb Modules

Now, clone this section twice. Change the background color of your second Blurb Module to ‘#3c85c1’.

section dividers

Likewise, change the background color of your third Blurb Module to ‘#7277f9’.

Divider Style #2

Top Divider Style

You can apply different divider styles to this, or any other, design. Find the following divider style on the list:

section dividers

Divider Style #3

Top Divider Style

You can also go with the following divider style:

section dividers

Divider Style #4

Top Divider Style

Or the last divider style which requires an increased Divider Horizontal Repeat of ’17x’.

Now that we’ve gone through all the steps, let’s take a final look at the different section dividers that we’ve applied to the Blurb Modules in this tutorial:

Final Thought

That’s it for this two-part post! In the first part, we’ve shown you how to indirectly add section dividers to rows. We accompanied that post with a stunning design that we’ve recreated step by step. In this second part, we’ve changed the scenario and applied section dividers to modules instead. To have the same effect on tablet and phone as on desktop, we’ve created two versions. If you have any questions, make sure you leave a comment in the comment section below!
