For my purposes I add possibility to select predefined window definition
when notification is sent.

I wish it was that simple...

The code heavily rely on all notification cards to have the same size, and
be displayed in a vertical fashion. That's it's the 3rd card for example is
all is needed to know where to place it on the screen.

If now you have different card types, all being displayed differently, it
becomes extremely more complicated to know how to display your stack of
cards; nor would the logic layout be that obvious.

So at this stage, I'm going to pass on the idea..

I feel that all can be done as it is by simply using different images for
your purpose
