REST vs SOAP - fundamental difference

Today morning I read interesting difference between SOAP and REST on "Smart Bear" site -

SOAP is like an envelope while REST is just a postcard. Certainly a postcard is faster and cheaper to send than an envelope, but it could still be wrapped within something else, even an envelope. You can just read a postcard too, while an envelope takes a few extra steps, like opening or unwrapping to access what’s inside.
