A card and some cash is common in Switzerland.

Yes, this is the case here. I think the idea is that the mourners use the money to buy a floral tribute at a later date. It jarred with me when my Swiss in-laws died, as did my sister-in-laws gesture of giving us some of the funeral tributes to take home. They were all very obviously funereal, but the idea was for us to put them outside our house.
