Here is my best explanation:

'congratulatory message?' is the definition.

'morag's crying a lot about queen's' is the wordplay.
'morag's crying' becomes 'greeting' (Scottish term for crying- Morag is a Scottish name).
'a lot' becomes 'scad' (scads of something can mean large amounts of it).
'about' means one lot of letters goes inside another.
'queen' becomes 'r' (r is abbreviation regina. e.g. in ER ).
'scad' placed around 'r' is 'scard'.
'greeting'+'scard'='GREETINGS CARD'
