The error is from the PKCS #11 library (I guess it is opensc) and
probably the card itself.
Do you see any difference in "p11tool --list-mechanisms" with the new
and old card? It may
be that the new key is not allowed to sign using RSA-PKCS.

You can verify whether signing works with pkcs11-tool (from opensc)
using something like:
pkcs11-tool --module /path/to/ -s -M
pkcs11-tool --module /path/to/ -s -m RSA-PKCS --id 02
