Layer 3 switching Design

I’d like to run L3 switching between my core and access layer switches, but am missing something… Attached is a first draft of a diagram. I understand having one Vlan per switch and it stays there, and that’s what I plan to do, but what if I have a Vlan 40 that is my servers and printers vlan and I need vlan 40 ports on each of the switches shown?

Or would it be best to config the Port channels at a L2 and trunk them, and forget this idea? I will not be doing a lot of interoffice communication. Most of my traffic is internal endpoint to cloud…
