It’s always great to have extra resources that you can use when building a new website for yourself or for a client. That’s why we’re making sure you receive new layout packs every week. But there are other resources that may come in handy as well, such as “border images” or images that you can use along one side or another of a Divi design element to add a stylistic flourish. Using Divi’s built-in options along with these border images can bring stunning results. In this post, we’ve provided you with 5 different border images which you can download for free below. We’re going to explain how you can use these border images to your advantage and create a stunning end result.

Let’s get to it!

Creating the Overall Design

Add New Section

Spacing

Let’s start by creating the overall design we’ve used to showcase the border images. Open a new or existing page, add a new regular section and add some custom padding:

  • Top Padding: 300px
  • Bottom Padding: 300px

Column Structure

Continue by adding a new row to your section using the following column structure:

Without adding any modules yet, open the row settings, go to the Sizing settings and make the row fullwidth.

  • Make This Row Fullwidth: Yes

Add Title Text Module to Column 1

Let’s start adding some modules! The first module that’s needed is a Text Module. Add one to the first column and add your H2 copy of choice to the content box.

Adding the Border Shapes

Left Border Background Settings

Now that we’ve completed the overall design, we can start adding the border images! We’ll start off with the left border side. Find your border image of choice in the ‘Left Border’ folder and upload it as the section background image. Then, apply the following background image settings:

  • Background Image Size: Actual Size
  • Background Image Position: Center Left
  • Background Image Repeat: No Repeat

Or, you can find your border image of choice in the ‘Right Border’ folder and add it as the section background using the following settings:

Blend Colors Using Semitransparent Overlay

For each one of the included border shapes, you can decide to add a color overlay as well. This overlay helps you make the border images look more subtle. To add an overlay, go to your section settings and add a gradient background on top of the border background image.

  • Color 1: #ffffff
  • Color 2: rgba(255,255,255,0.36)
  • Gradient Direction: 141deg
  • Place Gradient Above Background Image: Yes
