Default Suggestions for Economical DIY Spot Gloss

I'd like to have an isolated rectangle of gloss on a business card (to simulate the plastic bubble of an action figure card). I called some online printing services and, as expected, a spot gloss would elevate the cost dramatically. I haven't bothered calling any local shops. So I'm brainstorming economical DIY ways to achieve this effect, and the best method I've come up with is to create a small stencil and individually spray each card with Krylon clear acrylic gloss spray. Hopefully on a 14-16 pt stock, this would work. Does anyone have experience with such a task, or could you offer an alternative suggestion to simulate spot gloss?
