you could do each card as a single layer, that would keep manipulation of the cards simple.

here's a method i would try..

bring your card background into the main comp and hide it.

create a new solid that is the same size as the card background (500x500) and make it the color of the card face that you want and make it 3d. with that layer selected, double click the rectangular mask tool to make a mask the same size as the layer.

add the stroke effect, set it to use mask 1 and adjust the thickness and color as needed (this will become the dashed line).

to make it a dashed line, add the grid effect, set the color to the same color as the card face, set blending mode to normal, set the size from width slider and adjust width value to get the dashed line that you want.

add the basic text plugin (in obsolete), set the font and type in the first coupon text. after that you can set the size, color and stroke properties as needed.

add the light sweep effect.

to get the back of the card onto the back of that coupon layer, add compound arithmetic, setting the second source layer to the card back layer and then adding this little expression (from dan ebbert's motion to the blend with original property (and make sure the layer coupon layer is 3d):

if (toCompVec([0, 0, 1])[2] > 0 ) 100 else 0

now if you flip the card on the x or y axis, the face will change to either be the back or the face.

you can simply duplicate that coupon layer and change the text as needed.
