The plain old "print card" command used to do this. Don't open printing 
first, just issue a "print card" command without doing anything else. It 
is supposed to send the card image to the default printer.

I'm not sure what happened a couple of years ago, but it stopped working 
for me in OS X. I haven't tried it on XP but you might have better luck 
there. In OS X, calling "print card" without first opening printing or 
using "answer printer" turns off the print queue.
