Improving UX for multi-selectable cards

by Ashwin Nepal   Last Updated April 15, 2019 09:16 AM

I'm designing a screen where the user should be able to:
1. Select b/w multiple options (displayed in cards)
2. Search for other cards and be able to select those as well.
Here's a picture for better explanation:

Option to search or select the various options Option to search or select the various options

User selects option 2 from recent options User selects option 2 from recent options

User now searches for another option User now searches for another option and selects it.

His selections are only displayed when he clears his search His selections are only displayed when he clears his search

I am confused about the user experience part of such an interface.
1. Is this an intuitive UI?
2. There isn't much real estate for me to play with and displaying the same cards in both the search results and separately as a selected option does not seem possible. Are there examples of other sites which do this?
3. What should the ideal multi card search
