Your page’s hero section deserves all the attention it can get. There are endless ways to style your hero section, depending on what your website is about and how your target audience behaves. For some websites, it can come in handy to place multiple column CTA cards without creating an overwhelming experience. A great way to approach it is by creating column swipe CTA cards. In today’s Divi tutorial, we’ll show you how to create a stunning design from scratch that tackles this technique. You’ll be able to download the JSON file for free as well!

Let’s get to it.

Let’s Start Recreating!

Add New Section

Add a new section to the page you’re working on, open the section settings and insert a gradient background.

Move on to the design tab and add some custom top and bottom padding across different screen sizes.

  • Top Padding: 5vw (Desktop), 10vw (Tablet), 13vw (Phone)
  • Bottom Padding: 5vw (Desktop), 10vw (Tablet), 13vw (Phone)

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

CSS Class

And use a CSS class in the advanced tab. Later on this post, we’ll use this CSS class to hide the scrollbar.

  • CSS Class: swipe-scrollbar

Column Swipe CTAs

Main Element

To create a horizontal scroll/swipe, we’ll need to place the columns horizontally. We’ll do that by adding some custom CSS code in the main element of the row.

display: grid; grid-template-columns: repeat(6, 100%); grid-column-gap: 2vw;

Column Swipe CTAs

Overflows

Move on to the visibility settings and change the overflows of the row.

Column Settings

Once you’ve completed the row settings, you can open the first column’s settings.

Column Swipe CTAs

Gradient Background

Add a gradient background.

Column Swipe CTAs

Main Element

Another important part in making this work is adding one single line of CSS code to the main element of the column.

width: 100% !important;

Add Text Module #1 to Column 1

Clone Column up to 5 Times & Reuse for Other CTAs
