Card Showcase with limited description-height


I wanted to use the wonderfull Card Showcase but limit the description-paragraph to, lets say, 100px.

Descriptions that are too big to fit in this size should be shortened and “…” should be added to indicate that there’s more to read.

I have turned the <p> into an <div> and set:

    overflow: hidden;
    text-overflow: ellipsis;

but that’s not 100% nice =) Dots are not showing and letters like g or j are being cut. Any ideas?

Greetings & Thanks!
