We keep on covering the card style layout but I wanted to share a variation of that layout with you.

Jeff Needles shared a photo on Twitter of the card style layout, the material design layout, but with boxes that also have a bit of a shadow or depth to them. It makes the snippet box really jump out more than the other tests.

I like the first one, but I dislike the layout over the current one. I am no UI expert or design guru, so take my layout preferences with a grain of salt (kind of like you do with everything else I write here :).
