Cards. Zoom please. The inspiration of method from here: http://mycolorscreen.com/2012/09/18/slidock/ (thanks Andi!) See GIF (wallpaper link on the right) how it works.
Walls, transparent icon and uzips: http://dl.dropbox.com/u/15951305/cards.zip
Main settings: Apex 9×7 grid, dock disabled, no margins, no transition. MLW: set walls, no transition. Uccw: 1st screen – cards1, 2nd screen – cards1 and cards1 (set 4×2 widgets and resize to fit). Center icons are transparent to switch between pages (open card 2 and close)
Or another way: set this wallpaper (http://dl.dropbox.com/u/15951305/cards_wall.png) and set no transition and speed to 1 (thanks Alex T.!). This method spares you memory and looks even better.
