public static final CardBuilder.Layout EMBED_INSIDE

Allows a custom layout to be embedded inside a card that optionally has a standard footnote, timestamp, and stack indicator.

The embedded layout will be inflated inside a RelativeLayout that is bounded within the standard margins of the card so that it does not overlap with the card's footer.
