I don't think you need two active cards.
I personally created a key normally (actually the one that I had been
using for months before I got the card), had backups and all that, and
migrated the keys to the card. Alternately, it sounds like people are
saying you are prompted to create a backup file if you try to create a
key directly on a card, but I didn't do this so I can't confirm if/how
Either way, if you have a proper backup, you can restore the backup to
disk normally, then move it onto a replacement key's hardware.
