Blue Horse cards

I have two horse cards to share with you that are similar in ways and a little different in other ways. 

Similar: 1. I used the same blue barn wood patterned paper that I don't know who the manufacturer is because it was part of a prize from Simon Says Stamp. 2. The size of these cards is the same with a 4 x 5 7/8. 3. The horse stamps were both heat embossed using Versa Mark ink and Ranger's platinum embossing powder. 4. They both use a fence border punch in their designs. 5. These two cards both use a sentiment die cut that was a prototype I was lucky enough to try out on my Cuttlebug and those die cuts have both been inked on the inside with Ranger's distress ink. 6. The cards both have the same Creative Memories border sticker covering the seam between the fence and the grey cardstock. 7. Last one, the images on these cards have been die cut with a scalloped edge die cut.

Difference: 1. Both cards use grey cardstock but the top is by Coredinations and the bottom by Recollections. 2. The card orientation is opposite. 3. The horse stamps are different but from the same Inkadinkado stamp set. 4. The fence border punches are different and I'm not sure of their manufacturer because they were part of a swap a long time ago. 5. The sentiment die cut are different colors with the blue cardstock by Color-Aid and the grey cardstock by Stampin Up. The sentiment is made up of letter stamps by Lawn Fawn. 6. The top card doesn't use black cardstock and the bottom card does. 7. The die cut in the top card is by Sizzix and the bottom is by Spellbinders. With the bottom die cut I inked on the inside with Ranger's distress ink. 7. The bottom card also has a die cut behind the image and it was cut out using my Cricut.

Thanks for looking.
