Not possible by design.

What you can do is generate the key on the machine, then copy (not move)
it to the card. But if you already generated it on-card you're toast.
A possible workaround could be encrypting the password store to multiple
"recipients" instead on only one (the GPGcard). Those multiple recipents
can be everything you want: GPGcards, keys on disk, other people...
