This is very interesting, but I don't know what all the "A" sizes are, as we us a different standard in the US. I am afraid the directions don't make too much sense without understanding the sizes you have referenced, but I am so thrilled to see what you are doing with your Cinch! I found your blog from Splitcoaststampers Cinch thread.

A is a standard card size in the US. It is basically an 8.5x11 folded in half lengthwise and then widthwise.
