Would this need to be cross platform, or would a Mac solution be  

Regardless, I think I would lay everything out using Rev stacks, take  
screen shots of the finished stacks/cards/etc., and assemble one or  
more PDFs of the results. On either platform, this could be done by  
creating the layouts of the screen shots, along with any descriptions  
you need/want using MacDraft or PCDraft. Very easily done. I do it all  
the time on Macs. You can create multi-page PDFs of various page sizes.

I hope I've understood what you're attempting to do.
