select all controls that you want to have on EVERY card and group 

Then check that goup's "backgroundBehaviour" in the "Basic Properties" 
in the Inspector
for that group.

This way the group will be placed on every new card when you create a 
new card...

BUT that group must be on the card where the new card is being created!
Sounds like that is the case in your example :-)

Hope that helps.
