put card.xml in your drawables directory, put colors.xml in your values directory or add the colors to your colors.xml file.
 
 
set the background of a view to card,
as you can see in card.xml the drawable handles the card margin, so you don't have to add a margin to your view
 
 
``` xml
<View
android:layout_width="fill_parent"
android:layout_height="wrap_content"
android:background="@drawable/card"
/>
```
