Answer

To keep the layout ratio in your case you could use this XML attributes android:ellipsize and android:maxLines on the TextView.

TextView example:

<TextView android:id="@+id/txt_discription"
    android:layout_width="match_parent"
    android:layout_height="wrap_content"
    android:textColor="#FFFFFF"
    android:ellipsize="end"
    android:maxLines="2"
    tools:text="This is a simple discription with losts of text lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipiscing elit, sed do eiusmod tempor incididunt ut labore et dolore magna aliqua."
    />

This is a simple example of a CardView into XML layout file using the previous TextView:

<android.support.v7.widget.CardView
    xmlns:android="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res/android"
    xmlns:card_view="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res-auto"
    xmlns:tools="http://schemas.android.com/tools"
    android:id="@+id/card_view"
    android:layout_width="match_parent"
    android:layout_height="200dp"
    android:layout_margin="8dp"
    card_view:cardCornerRadius="4dp"
    >

    <ImageView
        android:id="@+id/card_background_image"
        android:layout_width="match_parent"
        android:layout_height="match_parent"
        android:layout_gravity="center"
        android:scaleType="centerCrop"
        tools:src="@android:mipmap/sym_def_app_icon"
        />

    <LinearLayout
        android:layout_width="match_parent"
        android:layout_height="wrap_content"
        android:orientation="vertical" 
        android:background="@android:drawable/screen_background_dark_transparent"
        android:layout_gravity="bottom"
        android:padding="16dp"
        >
        <TextView
            android:id="@+id/card_title"
            android:layout_width="match_parent"
            android:layout_height="wrap_content"
            android:paddingTop="8dp"
            android:paddingBottom="8dp"
            android:textAllCaps="true"
            android:textStyle="bold"
            android:textColor="#FFFFFF"
            android:ellipsize="end"
            android:maxLines="1"
            tools:text="Cart title"
            />

        <TextView android:id="@+id/txt_discription"
            android:layout_width="match_parent"
            android:layout_height="wrap_content"
            android:textColor="#FFFFFF"
            android:ellipsize="end"
            android:maxLines="2"
            tools:text="this is a simple discription with losts of text lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipiscing elit, sed do eiusmod tempor incididunt ut labore et dolore magna aliqua."
            />

    </LinearLayout>
</android.support.v7.widget.CardView>

Hope it helps.
