Mouse events outside stack bounds on mobile

I've been trying to figure out some option for this, but only thing that comes to mind is: allowing the stack to fill the display normally, and manually adjusting the card's content to stay centered within the stack. The easiest way to do this would be to have all your controls in a group, if that's possible.

Why does does the background portion need to be tappable?

For example, the normal stack in the IDE is 414 pixels wide. On the iPhone simulator, there are perhaps 20-30 pixels outside that boundary on the edges.
