You can do the same in Scribus with Multiple Copy Paste. Works really

But before you do a multiple copy paste, get the python script here:

Trait de coupe means cut marks. Run this first and then multiple copy
paste and all the cards will have the cut marks properly set.

There is also a template Yves made here:
http://www.yeccoe.org/IMG/gz/gabarit_carte_visite.tar.gz which is for A4
business cards. 

Hope that helps,
