Does "gpg -K" list your key? This is what Kmail displays.
You are using a decent Kmail (with all the crypto tabs in the
configuration dialog and the requirement for gpg-agent)?

For gpg it makes no difference whether the key is on the disk or on
the card. This is because we create a "stub"- secret key for every
card key. gpg -K will show you the serial number of the cards
associated with that secret key.
If you generated the card key on another machine, please run "gpg
--card-status" once on the new machine to create such a stub key.
