Your method of putting the menu in a separate stack is fine. 
Alternatively, if you place the menubar group on each card, then all 
the cards in that stack will be shrunk by 22 pixels. Something that I 
need to remember and almost never do :-( is create the menu FIRST!!! 
before adding any objects to your cards/stack.
