you just have to group that (yes, single) button, check the "Background 
of that new group et voila, you can place that button on every card...

When the background beh. is checked, that group will be placed on every
new created card automatically.

If you created that group after creating 1 zillion cards, no problem, 
you do not have to
place that background manually ;-)

As always, let RR/MC do the work for you:

on mouseup ## or whenever...
   get the num of cds
   repeat with i = 1 to it
      place bg "your_group_name_her" onto cd i
   end repeat
end mouseup

You're welcome...
