Style your Divi Blurbs like Material Design Cards

Style a row of Divi Blurbs to appear as cards/blocks — with a cool animation on hover.

Here is an example video of it in action:

The code below will override all blurbs to have the cool hover effect. But if you specifically use the .blurb-row class on a Row module, it will also give them the card styling too — which basically adds:

  • some padding
  • white background
  • shadow
  • ensures the blurbs are all the same height, within the row

In addition to adding the .blurb-row class to the Row module, you will also probably want to set:

  • Customer Gutter Width: 1
  • Equalize Column Heights
