Presuming you know the dimensions of the business card (apart from A8 and ID-1, each country (group) has its own size), it depends on a few things, such as:
1) How close to the intended dieline are the crucial parts?
2) Does the card have a solid background colour (possibly none/white)?
If the card has a solid background colour and if the crucial parts are at a safe distance (which they should be in any case), you may just place all the cards on one page close together, upon a sufficiently large rectangle with the background, and set marks to cut the rows and columns of cards, no need for actual setting any (individual) bleed.
You are welcome, Martin.
Jacob gave you good advice but do not use the the term dieline refer to the the trim size as the trim size and the lines composing the trim size as trim lines.
In some cases a die is used but that is for a special shaped card.
It is no big deal but if yoiu refer to dielines in the U.S, they are going to ask you why you want to use a die to trim the cards?
They will figure it out but the best policy is to use correct term. There are some printers that will flyout the window with instructions.

In which case the term may be self fulfilling.
Wel!…yes indeed it would be.
