Create a tabbed button with two tabs, A and B.

Group this button (so it's the only item in the group).

Place the group on all the cards. You will need to adjust the layer to make
sure it's behind the card-specific controls.

Add a menuPick handler to the tabbed button's script to go to the
appropriate card when you click a tab.
