Simple, Sweet Cards

I originally made these cards for Mother's Day for my mother and mother-in-law.  However this simple, sweet design can easily be used for any sort of note.

Remember seeing these floating around on Pinterest?

As soon as I saw these, I had my mother start collecting corks for me.  She mostly buys cheaper wine that has the fake, plastic corks.  However, I decided to try it anyways.  And guess what?  It works!!!

Now I just need to increase my ink pad collection…I only have one color (which is why the leaves and stems are drawn on =P)

I am not doing a full tutorial in this post for two reasons.
1. It is SO simple.
2. There is already a great tutorial
that I linked to above.

But I will give a supplies list:
As many corks as ideas
A creative mind
Sharpie (or other pen)
An exacto knife

Here is the final product of the gift for my Mom. Coconut Oil for her feet, a gift card for a pedicure, and the pretty card signed by all her children. I was quite proud of my cute wrapping. =P

Be blessed!


  1. The cards are so sweet, Alesha! & what a fun idea for a stamp. :)

  2. I found your blog off of Kerrie's blog: The Williams Post. I LOVE this idea. I've been saving corks for a while now just thinking there has to be something fun I can do with them! I can't wait to try this. Thanks for sharing! :)

  3. They're quite lovely ... lucky mom's. Thanks for sharing how.

  4. Very cute heart flowers! I'm visiting from the Summer Fun Party. I'm your newest follower on GFC if you'd like to follow me back :)
