Remember the basic rule of group references: you refer to "groups" relative
to a card, but to "backgrounds" relative to the stack. A group reference is
like any other control reference, so referring to 'group "My Group" of
stack "My Stack"' will no more work than 'button "My Button" of stack "My
Stack"'. There needs to be a card reference in there.

If you need to reference a group without relating it to a card, you need to
use the word "background".
