Cards provide a set of content which acts as an entry point to more detailed information.


Cards are containers for displaying relevant and actionable information on a single topic. A card serves as a single, contained unit and is independent of surrounding content. It cannot be nested within cards and cannot divide into multiple cards.

Use when

  • You need to group information in a digestible form.
  • You need to offer a short entry point that is linked to more detailed content or a complex task.
  • Laying out single or multiple sets of related information in the same region of the page. Cards may include an image, a text summary, chips, and actions. Cards typically have similar widths, but heights should accommodate varying content.
  • Cards are commonly used on home or dashboard screens.

Don’t use when

  • You need to show unrelated content types or actions in a single container.
  • You need to show content in multiple columns.
  • You need to display content in a table format.
  • Grouping a large set of related information.
