Pillow Sham and Pillow Case


Thanks to Heidita and Sally for previous help! This is a question for someone who understands bedding. Need for work project.
In the Spanish language, is there a difference between:
Pillow sham - a sham matches the comforter or duvet on the bed.
Pillowcase = a pillowcase matches the sheets.
If so, how do you translate pillowcase and pillow sham'

Here in Spain we have the "funda de almohada" which matches the sheets, actually the sheets come always together with the pillow cases.
Oh, I have had a look at the pictures.
