duplicate an artboard with link

I am designing a card that I wish to appear multiple times on a page.

Actually, I wish to duplicate this card in a 5 by 2 array, and make sure that all copies of the card will stay identical, no matter how I modify the original card.

In other words, I need to copy an artboard with link.  I can easily do this in Word and in Excel.

Can this be done?  Or maybe there is a workaround?

I am new to AI.

You could make it a Symbol

And paste the symbol on all artboards: Edit > Paste on All Artboards.
